Living in a sunny state could offer protection from pancreatic cancer.
A new Australian study looked at data collected from more than 1,000 adults. They were asked about their skin type and birth location.
Researchers found people born in areas with the highest UV exposure had a nearly 25 percent lower risk for pancreatic cancer.
People with a sun-sensitive skin type, or those who had skin cancer in the past, also had a lower risk for the disease.
The researchers are hoping to learn more about Vitamin D and sun exposure and their relationship with all forms of cancer.
