What are UV/UVB rays? UVA rays?

These rays are one of the many types of light that make up the electromagnetic spectrum. Many UV rays are thankfully absorbed by our planet’s atmosphere but a portion of them still reach Earth and your skin. While UV rays are not detrimental in limited amounts, the exposure we get every day through our windows is not only significant but magnified as well. Scientists have linked UV rays to a variety of health diseases such as melanoma, macular degeneration, premature aging, and immune system oppression.
