Its depletion has led to heightened exposure to UV-B radiation increasing the risk of skin cancer, cataracts and suppression of the immune system. (...) Controls implemented under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer have enabled the global community to avoid millions of cases of fatal skin cancer and tens of millions of cases of non-fatal skin cancer and cataracts. For example, the United States estimates that by the year 2065, efforts to protect the ozone layer will have prevented more than 6.3 million skin cancer deaths in the nation and saved an estimated US$4.2 trillion in healthcare costs over the period 1990–2065.

Overexposure to sunlight causes harmful effects on the skin, eyes, and immune system. Experts believe that four out of five cases of skin cancer could be prevented, as UV damage is mostly avoidable. (...) Often not all of the sun damage will be fully repaired by the body's defence system, so it will gradually cause skin ageing over the years and may lead to skin cancer. (...) Thanks to measures taken under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, the destruction of the stratospheric ozone layer has been halted.

The amount of UV radiation from the sun that hits the Earth’s surface depends on several factors, including the sun’s height in the sky, latitude, cloud cover, altitude, the thickness of the ozone layer and ground reflection. Reductions in the ozone layer due to human-created pollution increase the amount of UVA and UVB that reaches the surface. (...) In humans, increased UV exposure can cause skin cancers, cataracts and immune system damage.       Prevention The rise in the number of cases of skin cancer over the past decades is strongly related to increased exposure to the sun during outdoor activities and to artificial sources of UV radiation such as sunlamps and tanning beds.
