Dead Sea Mor Dermatology and Rheumatology
Clinic``Since ancient times, the medical healing
properties of the Dead Sea have been well known. Aristotle, Queen of Sheba,
King Solomon and Cleopatra were all familiar with its beauty and medical
powers. In modern times, particularly in the last half century, thousands
of patients come every year to the Dead Sea area for the treatment of dermatologic
and rheumatic disorders. The Dead Sea itself, which has a 33% concentration
of salts and minerals (compared to only 3% in the ocean), is located at
the lowest point on the earth, 390 meters (about 1300 feet) below sea level.
Because of this unique location, certain atmospheric, thermal, chemical
and optical characteristics are found which occur nowhere else in the world.

Dermatology Unit continues to pursue a research programme that is primarily
focused on melanoma and pigmented moles. The major project has been an
epidemiological study of moles in 1123 children in Melbourne, Sydney and

that the development of moles is strongly influenced by sun exposure, particularly
in early childhood.``
