CFC Ban Successful Healing Ozone Layer Lowers UV Exposure, Report Finds

A new scientific study has confirmed that the healing of the ozone layer is also reducing people's exposure to harmful UV rays from the sun. It will still take years before the ozone layer recovers entirely, but the string of positive news continues.
A new report suggests that the 1987 ban on hydrochlorofluorocarbons has been successful in reversing the erosion of the ozone layer and that exposure to UV rays is declining.
