  2. The UVB rays are also dangerous causing burning cataracts (clouding of the eye lens) and effects at the immune system. They also contribute at skin cancer. The melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, is believed to be associated with serious sun burns UVB that appears before the age of 20. The most UVB rays are absorbed by an ozone layer but many of those rays penetrate the layer and might cause serious damage.
