Melanoma Increasingly Striking Children

Melanoma Increasingly Striking Children

Research indicates that although it is “still rare,” melanoma is “increasingly striking children: U.S. pediatric cases rose 2 percent a year between 1973 and 2009, from a total of less than 250 a year then to about 500 now.” Research has also “found increases in England, Sweden and Australia.” Although the cause of the increase is note clear, “some suspect – though there’s no supporting data – it may involve the depletion of the ozone layer, which absorbs most of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.”
