106 – Dr Owen Carter – Research into the Ultraviolet Index

We have all heard of the ultraviolet index in weather reports. What is it? What does it mean to the lay person? What is the average person’s perception of the ultraviolet index? I talk to Dr Owen Carter from the CBRCC and Curtin University in Western Australia about his research into this area.

– Who is most likely to get sunburned?
– What are the best predictors for skin cancer?
– What is the difference between SPF and the Ultraviolet Index?
– Is all exposure to UV bad? Is there a protective effect?
– What are people’s perceptions of the UV Index?
– What measures have been recommended to influence people’s perception of the UV index and help reduce the incidences if skin cancer?
