Ultraviolet radiation is part of the electromagnetic spectrum and is found naturally in sunlight. Our skin responds to this by turning darker, however we cannot see or feel it.

Dangers Edit

Ultraviolet radiation is known to cause blindness and damage to cells on the surface of the skin. It is also a type of ionising radiation - this means it carries enough energy to remove electrons from atoms. This can mutate DNA in living cells, leading to cancer.
