The cumulative risk of radiation
In the new study analyzed 17 different UV lamps for drying nail to determine what is the intensity of radiation emitted . The results showed that the range of broadcasting between UV lamps was great , from those that emit little UV light to those that emit significant amounts of UV radiation . DNA damage that is believed to be cause of skin cancer caused by UV radiation intensity of about 60 J / cm2 and none of the tested lamps not emit radiation that would be close to that figure .
However , scientists have calculated that for most of the tested lamps applies to exposure to UV radiation in an amount from 8 to 14 visits during 2 to 3.5 years reaches dangerous levels of radiation that causes DNA damage . The researchers conclude that the estimated risk obtained in this study theoretical nature , but in reality the risk of skin cancer from UV lamps for nails is very small .
