My understanding is that the whole idea of UV "treated" fabric is that it allows you to have a lightly colored, open knit/weave fabric that still blocks UV as well as a heavy weight, dark colored, closed knit/weave fabric would. I also read that it's basically not an issue for normal, healthy adults with average to above average sun exposure. However, if you have special sun sensitivities (lupus, skin cancer, sun allergy), then UV fabrics offer you an alternative to heavy, hot clothing in the summers.
Beyond that, it's pretty gimmicky - because if it really was only necessary for individuals with serious problems, it would likely only be available on a very limited scale, instead of being tagged on every camp shirt from here to Timbuktu...
