Ozone Depletion and Skin Cancer Outline
The introduction is there to give the definition of the topic by breaking down the elements that are needed to make the precursor to the whose research paper. The introduction will give the definition of ozone layer depletion and will provide a relationship between the depletion of the ozone layer with skin cancer using research materials.
Issue I: Ozone depletion represents the steady thinning process o the ozone layer present in the atmosphere. The thinning process of the ozone is caused mainly by human activity especially when the chemical compounds, mainly CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons), come in contact with the layer and break down the ozone molecules over time (Martens et al).
Issue II: The depletion of the ozone layer has adverse effects to the environment and to humans. The paper focuses on the chief adverse effect ozone layer depletion has on human health specifically skin cancer. Ozone layer depletion increases direct exposure to ultraviolet rays which cause skin cancer such as basal cells and melanoma (Martens et al).
Position Statement: Ozone layer depletion is caused by human activity which is harmful to the environment and human health. Awareness needs to be spread to prevent more damage to the ozone.
