Bentham, in the 1993 paper "Depletion of the Ozone Layer: Consequences for Non-Infectious Human Diseases," and van der Leun and de Gruijl (1993), in the chapter "Influences of Ozone Depletion on Human and Animal Health" of UV-B Radiation and Ozone Depletion, voice a common concern: Given the strong association between ultraviolet radiation exposure and skin cancer, the anticipated rise in UV-B irradiance due to ozone depletion may significantly increase the risk in exposed populations. Several researchers, including physicians Robinson (1990) and Stern, Weinstein, and Baker (1986) suggest policymakers, health care professionals, and individuals adopt measures to prevent and treat future cases of skin cancer. In "Risk Reduction for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer with Childhood Sunscreen Use," Stern, Weinstein, and Baker (1986) recommend that pediatricians prescribe sunscreen use and sun avoidance as a routine aspect of pediatric preventive health care. In "Behavior Modification Obtained by Sun Protection Education Coupled with Removal of a Skin Cancer," Robinson (1990) describes the behavior modification and compliance with sun-protection measures of more than 1,000 patients over the age of 20 during a four-year period. Prawer (1991), also a physician, strongly suggests in "Sun-related Skin Diseases" that all patients be counseled on the harmful effects of all sources of UV radiation and educated about methods of photo-protection. The global scope of this problem, the severity of its effects, and the low cost of prevention all seem to warrant widespread public education among high risk populations.
