Sebum excretion and acne grades were measured in 20 pairs each of identical and non-identical like-sex twins. The identical twins had virtually identical rates of sebum excretion (P greater than 0.05), but they had a significantly different degree of acne severity (P less than 0.01). The non-identical twins had significantly different sebum excretion rates(More)

A study of the incidence of skin cancer over a 14-year period in the North Humberside area of the U.K. indicates a steady rise in the numbers of the four most common types of skin cancer. A steep increase in the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin compared with that of internal squamous cell carcinoma was also detected. Our findings emphasize(More)
