The bulk of the deaths are from skin cancers caused by excess exposure to the sun's harmful rays, ultraviolet radiation, says WHO.
UVR also causes sunburn, triggers cold sores and ages the skin, according to its report, the first to outline the global health burden of sun exposure.
Simple measures, such as covering up when in the sun, could cut the deaths.....follow us

We all must take individual actions to protect ourselves but lets remember the sun is responsible for playing its part in the existance of life and sustaining life, she's a big glowing beauty, no wonder so many religions, cultures and ancient civilisations worship her... :flop:

This is a LIE. If you are eating a proper diet that is high in protein, fat and long grain fiber foods, the sun isn't going to hurt you. I"m guessing the WHO gets paid by someone with an agenda to keep people weak.
