If we all lived underground away from the sun, would we still get cancer?

yeah, cancer does not come from the sun

Mrs. Willoughby
we would die without sun... as long as you don't overexpose yourself... you're fine

Alex b
sun does not cause the killing cancer it causes skin cancer which is a SUN BURN. Big deal.

Becca B
There are lots of other cancers other than skin cancer, the only one usually associated with the sun. The big problem with living underground would be that humans need the sun to make Vitamin D. Without making enough Vitamin D, which is common in winter because people dont get enough sunlight on the bare skin they get sad and tired. So to live underground people would need sunlamps which would kinda defeat the point.

Mandy Cat
probably....from LACK of sun!

Sun Tzu
yes, some cancers are caused by the foods you eat.

Stuck in the middle of nowhere
Yes, of course.

Double Dachshunds Owner
Yes. There are other types of cancer that are genetic and not caused by the AVB and UVB rays of the sun. Take breast cancer, for example.

yep probably form bad air..

Depends how would we live underground? I think it's more than just the sun that causes cancer look at all of our technological advances (cell phones, microwaves, tv's, chemicals going into our meat and farms) etc.

Probably not skin cancer but there are countless types of cancer- they can't possibly all be eradicated simply by moving underground.

Christian R
Well I don't think you would get skin cancer but you could get other types of cancer i think.

yes you would

like wood different types

and that's a 4 by 2 hitting your empty head

We would still get other forms of cancer, but probably not sun cancer!

Yes. There are lots of different types of cancer, not just skin cancer. Also, some types of skin cancer are unrelated to sun exposure. In addition, there are other sources of UV radiation, like some types of lighting, and other types of radiation that penetrate the ground. You can't be cancer free anywhere.

We need the sun for lots of reasons. The most important one in terms of health is Vitamin D. If we chose to live underground we'd have to take Vitamin D supplements, like they used to have to eat fruit to prevent scurvy from lack of vitamin C while at sea.

♫~♫~Julia - Ailuj~♫~♫
yeah... there is breast cancer and lung cancer... there are lots of cancers that dont involve the sun.

Julia H
not sun cancer, but maybe other forms.
we'd probably all die anyway....

yes - it just wouldn't be skin cancer.

we know many chemicals that are cancer causing that have nothing to do with the sun.

cancer is formed from cells that continue to divide uncontrollably and become mutated
so some will get cancer, just not as much skin cancer

Give&Take 2008
I know sun causes skin cancer, but the Vitamin D from the sun actually prevents some. 10-15 minutes a day is ok.

the sun isnt the only thing that causes cancer

Yes. Cancer can be caused by more things than sun.

Yes, but probably fewer cases of skin cancer. Other cells are constantly mutating, and this is where cancer occurs.

If you mean skin cancer . . than yes . . absolutely. The sun is only ONE risk factor . . not the only one . . people still get skin cancer in places on their bodies where no sun shines . . like the bottom of their feet. So, yes, people would still get skin cancer.

As for the other 200 different types of cancer . . yes, people would still get cancer no matter what environment they lived in.

we wouldn't get skin cancer thats for true.

gecko guy

Albert Chen
Yes, there's more than skin cancer in this world and you would also catch UV lights from other things.

no, but your skin needs the sun and cancer only get if youre many hours in the sun

Kitty Pryde
Er... well that would probably reasult in lung cancer instead because of the moisture
