If it was, it wouldn't be called "too much." In very severe cases, you can die from overexposure to the sun. You can get sunburn from prolonged UV exposure, sun exhaustion, sun stroke, and sun poisoning. As someone that grew up on the beaches in Florida, we would always take white very light cotton long sleeved shirts with us to the beach. During the hottest parts of the day, we would throw our shirts on over our swim suits to avoid overexposure. That is also the reason that you see desert natives wearing long clothes, despite the heat. They know they need to protect themselves.
