Abstract

Vitamin D, ultraviolets and skin cancer The vitamin D supply is fundamental for the prevention of falls and fractures in aged people, among other effects. UVB triggers vitamin D synthesis in the skin. This relationship has recently gained attention both with the general public and with health care professionals. Some authors suggest a relaxation of UV protection measures, while others even advocate regular sunlight exposure in order to increase cutaneous vitamin D synthesis. However, the UV irradiation responsible for vitamin D synthesis also is a known carcinogen. UV exposure is an insufficient and harmful method to increase vitamin D synthesis. Oral supplementation is the recommended way to prevent and cure vitamin D deficiency.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
