can pollution in the air cause skin cancer?

Expert Answer
Dear student,
 Long-term exposure to air pollution can cause cancer and long-term damage to the immune, neurological, reproductive, and respiratory systems.
Because skin is largely exposed to the atmosphere, and allows exogenous material to penetrate into your body, pollutants target this organ heavily. Skin cancer is frequently caused by ultraviolet-B radiation which enters earth during ozone depletion. The protective ozone layer in atmosphere is damaged by chemicals such as CFCs and methyl chloroform, and can lead to harmful health effects such as skin cancer and cataracts. In addition, frequent exposures to radiation can also cause cancer and other adverse health effects.
