reply to post by prisoneronashipoffools Originally posted by prisoneronashipoffools While, my mother was going to college she worked as a
manicurist and used UV lamps to dry peoples nails etc. I guess according to all of you keyboard scientists, her hands should be riddled with cancer
and falling off by now, from all the UV exposure they received. lol www.chron.com... The paper states, "It appears that exposure to UV nail
lights is a risk factor for the development of skin cancer." I think your reaction to everyone else was a knee-jerk reaction. It has been proven
scientifically for years now that UV light breaks chemicals bonds in DNA.
Thanks for the reply and your source is duly noted, but I still stand by my example, my mother never developed cancer skin related or otherwise and
worked with uv lamps for quite a few years and I would add she is fair skinned, which would actually would make her more susceptible to UV then others
with darker skin.
And, frankly I wasn't telling the OP to willy nilly start dosing themselves with UV, simply that they should protect their idea and if later testing
proves it's effective and safe then they may make some money.
Also, frankly I find the modern day irrational fear towards UV, to be a problem. After all the same people that have everyone terrified of skin cancer
are the same people selling them sun tan lotion, which actually has more of a factor in causing skin cancer then reducing it. Also, you have enough
people with a knee jerk reactionary fear of UV and the sun that you actually have a lot of studies showing a large increase in the number of people
with vitamin D deficiency; which is also a risk factor for cancer.
Like I said I wasn't saying that the OP should just rush forward with idea, but at the same time he shouldn't just throw it away either, because of
people on ATS that seem to have an irrational phobia of UV; and yes I know to much UV isn't good for you,but your not going to burst into flames and
die like a vampire; nor will you necessarily develop skin cancer.
Anyway thanks for the reply, the source and your time.
