The common way to statistically analyse the effect of one variable is to model as many variables as the data allows and run a regression to isolate the effect of the target variable.
It may be that there are other problems with the study (e.g. correlations between the variables assumed to be independent) but this isn't one of them.

Even more impressive is that UV radiation is the spectrum from 10 nm to 400 nm, with extreme UV down the 10nm end. So this at most 2 wavelengths.* It barely gets waving.
* TFA didn't have wavelength data.

per day, per month, per year, per lifetime? The question says "unlimited" so I'm guessing the last.
