What is UV radiation?

What does it do?

UV radiation is the most intense of the visible and invisible wavelengths.

UV rays can be harmful to your health and the environment.

You may be able to protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses or a sun protection factor that protects your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays.

UV radiation also damages the skin and the lining of your lungs.

UV exposure causes sunburns and other skin damage.
