What is Ozone depletion? How does it affect our health?

Ozone depletion is the process where ozone holes are created in the ozone layer particularly over Antarctica and Arctic regions. Greenhouse gases (Methane, CO2, Nitrus Oxide, Chlorofluorocarbons) are believed to cause the ozone layer depletion. The effect of the ozone depletion is the release of ultraviolet radiation which creates a heightened risk of skin cancer.
