It obviously isn't the cause of cancers when people with black skin, Asian people are exposed to lots of sunlight and never develop skin cancers. Maybe its the diet we eat that causes it ?

the sun can cause skin cancer. if you are in it all the time. like tanning without sun screen. people with darker skin can get skin cancer, but it is less likely because their skin can tolerate the sun more than lighter colored skin people.

It's only skin cancer that sun exposure can cause, no other cancersUV radiation is the major risk factor for skin cancer, and the main source of UV is the sun.Skin that is fair and freckled has less protective pigment than darker skin and carries a higher risk of skin cancer.So yes, the sun can'cause cancer'.Diet is in no way a risk factor for skin cancer, and in fact has not been proven to cause any type of cancer.

it's because of the UV rays. too much exposure to it can cause great skin damages and can lead to skin cancer

Some people think the sun causes cancer because history, the data&the facts show that exposure to the sun causes skin cancer.You might find an argument with some of the thousands of black people&Asian people who have family members who DIED from skin cancer about your bizarre claim that"people with black skin, Asian people are exposed to lots of sunlight and never develop skin cancers"Check your facts much?

This one does not know where you are getting your medical information from but the same is incorrect.The sun causes scarring of the dermal tissue or skin by repeated burning of the same.This scarring leads to mutation in the formation of the cells that compose the skin. These mutation are called skin cancers and can be either benign or malignant.Individuals with greater amounts of melatonin in their skin cells and thereby with darker skins have evolved to better endure the potential harmful effects of the suns rays however, they can and do experience episodes of skin cancer. This is true whether they are African, Indian, Asian etc.If ignorance and stupidity were a crime you would stand convicted of both.
