ultraviolet B radiation

Low UV-B radiation protects against copper toxicity; high UV-B increases damage


If you suffer from a condition known as copper toxicity -- that is, you have too much "free copper" in your body associated with an underlying health condition such as impaired adrenal or liver function -- you may be looking for ways to reduce your overall copper load and thus avoid chronic toxicity. And one way you might be able to do this is by reducing your exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, which one study published in the journal Plant Physiology and Biochemistry found can minimize the oxidative stress caused by copper toxicity.
