SUN DAMAGE? WHAT SUN DAMAGE?

This is enough to make us want to stay in the dark for the rest of our lives. From the New York Daily News:

The New England Journal of Medicine has published a shocking photo of a 69 year-old man with unilateral dermatoheliosis -- severe damage from ultraviolet rays on one side of his face. 
The unnamed man, who gave permission for his photo to be used in new stories, told researchers that had driven a delivery truck for 28 years. 
Ultraviolet A (UVA) had penetrated the window glass, damaging the outermost layers and sublayers of his skin.
Yeah, that's gonna leave a mark.
