The sun is responsible for the development and continued existence of life on earth. The UV region of the electromagnetic spectrum is subdivided into three bands, termed UVA, UVB and UVC. Environmental photobiologists normally define the wavelength regions as UVA, 400-320 nm; UVB, 320-290 nm; UVC, 290-200 nm. The quality and quantity of UV radiation (UVR) at the earth’s surface depend on the energy output of the sun and the transmission properties of the atmosphere. From a biological viewpoint…

The Impact of Climate Change on Skin and Skin-Related Disease
Climate change refers to variation in regional and global climate over an extended period of time. The primary cause of climate change is anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases into the
African Shea Butter as a Staple and Renewable Bioproduct
The world is really making a turn to natural and bioderived chemicals/products. This is so in order to enhance sustainability of the socioeconomic growth, conservation of the environment and human
The Effects of Carbon Dioxide Concentration on Residents in the Area of a Cement Plant in Perak, Malaysia
Nowadays, concrete is used extensively in construction. The cement factory must generate massive amounts of cement each year in order to deliver enough concrete. Carbon dioxide emitted during the
Does national scale economic and environmental indicators spur logistics performance? Evidence from UK
Results show that FDI inflows, renewable energy sources, and per capita income have statistically significant and positive association with green logistics activities, while foreign investments attracted by environmental friendly policies and practices adopted in global logistics operations not only increase the environmental sustainability but also enhance economic activities with greater export opportunities in the region.

It is shown that it is likely that the baseline incidence of skin cancer will be augmented by rising temperatures, which may become significant in magnitude.
Global warming and its dermatologic implications
It is believed that global warming/climate change will bring new dermatologic challenges and a search on Pub Med from 1975 to 2007 on global warming and skin diseases revealed a rather scant literature.

The effects of solar UV on human skin such as sunburn, tanning, vitamin D3 production, photo-ageing, melanomas and skin cancer are described and the effect of solarUV on the eye is discussed.
Global climate change and emerging infectious diseases.
Analyzing the role of climate in the emergence of human infectious diseases will require interdisciplinary cooperation among physicians, climatologists, biologists, and social scientists to help optimize preventive strategies.
Effect of Climate on the Bacteriology of Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media
When the weather warmed, the frequency of isolation of enteric bacteria increased significantly and temperature changes may affect the enteric bacterial colonization of CSOM.
