The sun, which sustains all of life, is a powerful
force. Limited sun exposure is beneficial to our overall health, assisting the
body in producing bone benefiting vitamin D and assisting in healthy brain and
hormonal chemistry. We only need about 10 minutes of sunshine per day. But excessive sun exposure is the number one cause of
extrinsic (external) aging and can breakdown the skin’s immunity to the sun
leading to skin cancer.
While these sunscreens protect against sunburn,
there is no scientific research that chemical sunscreen protects the individual
against melanoma, basal cell carcinoma or premature aging. Chemical sunscreens encourage individuals to
prolong their sun exposure, increasing their risk of skin caner and premature
A suntan is actually your body’s way of trying to
protect tissue. When excessive sunlight absorbs into our skin free radicals and
enzymes are formed. The enzymes break down fat that then produces arachidonic
acid. Arachidonic acid is a precursor to the inflammatory response which
is linked directly to aging. When free radicals are formed, a chain
reaction begins, triggering “transcription factors” that lead to damage to the
collagen cells. This damage is called “microscarring” and is the actually
forming of a wrinkle. Damaged collagen looses its flexibility and resilience.
idea that sunscreen prevents cancer is a myth promoted by a profit-seeking
tag-team effort between the cancer industry and the sunscreen industry.
The rate of skin cancer has increased four-fold
since the introduction of chemical sunscreens on the market.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 600,000 new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed annually. And, even with all the information we have today about the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, this number is rising. Skin cancer causes 8500 deaths annually in the United States alone and is the most common type of cancer in the country.
Sunscreens Contain Cancer-Causing Chemicals Such As:
Allergy-creating PABA, benzophenone-3, homosalate,
octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC) 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor(4-MBC).
While these chemicals
protect skin from sun damage, experts have indicated the chemical octyl
methoxycinnamate, which is present in 90% of sunscreen brands, was found to
kill mouse cells even at low doses.
Almost all Sunscreens
contain Dosesbenzophenone-3 (Bp-3),
homosalate (HMS), 4-MBC, octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC), and octyl-dimethyl PABA
(OD-PABA) Other harmful and common chemicals include cinnamates (cinoxate,
ethylhexyl p-methoxycinnamatae, octocrylene, octyl methoxycinnamate),
silicylates (ethylhexyl salicylate, homoslate, octyl salicylate), digalloyl
trioleate, and menthyl anthranilate.
All of these
chemicals are banned in Europe.
- Scientific evidence shows quite clearly that sunscreen promotes cancer by blocking the body's
absorption of ultraviolet radiation, which produces vitamin D in the skin.
D, as recent studies have shown, prevents up to 77 of ALL cancers in women(breast cancer, colon cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, brain tumors,
multiple myeloma... you name it).
- The toxic chemical ingredients used in most sunscreen products
are actually carcinogenic and have never been safety tested or safety approved by the
- Chemicals get absorbed through the skin, your largest and porous
organ and enter the bloodstream.
- Proponents say sunscreen prevents sunburn, but in fact, the real
cause of sunburn is not merely UV exposure: It is a lack of antioxidant
- Eating berries and
microalgae (spirulina, astaxanthin, blue-green algae, etc.), help you build up
an internal sunscreen that will protect your skin from sunburn from the
- Sunburn is actually caused by nutritional deficiencies that leave the skin vulnerable to DNA mutations from radiation,
but if you boost your nutrition and
protect your nervous system with plant-based nutrients, you'll be naturally resistant
- The same nutrients also protect the optic nerve and eyes from
radiation damage. That's why the consumption of berries and carrots, for
example, has historically been associated with healthy eye function. (The same
nutrients that protect the eyes also protect the skin.)
Doctor Prescription and Recommended Medical Nonsense
If sunscreen is so bad for humans, you might ask, then why do so
many doctors recommend using it? This might be hard for you to believe, but it
wasn't too long ago that doctors routinely recommended smoking cigarettes,
too. The Journal of the American Medical Association, in fact, ran numerous ads
promoting Camels as "recommended by more doctors than any other
cigarette!" Doctors talked up the "benefits" of smoking
cigarettes, urging people to start smoking in order to improve brain function
or even -- get this -- make their teeth stronger!
The truth is doctors are easily influenced by commercial interests and
can be readily convinced to recommend practically any product, no matter how
toxic, unhealthy or deadly to consumers.
Also keep in mind that doctor-prescribed
medications are the fourth leading cause of death in America today. About
100,000 Americans die each year from following the advice of their doctor. Does
it really make any sense to get your health advice from a group of
professionals who kill more Americans each year than all the terrorists have
ever killed in the history of this country? Besides, doctors know that if
they start recommending sunlight and vitamin D, they'll lose patients and
profits because people will start getting well and have no need to keep
visiting the doctor. Vitamin D, as you will learn in our free report, The Healing Power of Sunlight and Vitamin D,
(http://www.newstarget.com/rr-sunlight.html)prevents not only cancer, but also diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, heart
disease and obesity. It's the miracle nutrient of the millennium, and yet the
entire medical profession tries desperately to pretend that vitamin D has no
biological function whatsoever. Hence the support of sunscreen (the
anti-vitamin D product).
The Sunscreen Marketing Con - Mike Adams
The marketing of sunscreen is another
great example of consumer product companies fabricating a need in order
to sell a high-profit product made mostly with toxic chemicals. There is no
need for sunscreen, but the cancer industry and sunscreen manufacturers have
created a fictitious need through a campaign of fear and disinformation,
hypnotizing practically the entire population into believing one of the most
ridiculous ideas in the universe: that sunlight is bad for human health.
Think about it. Our ancestors did not have indoor lighting; they exposed their
skin to the sun regularly. They didn't run and hide from the sun, they used it
as nourishment to generate a crucial vitamin that supports human health in a
multitude of ways. The idea that "the sun is bad for you" makes about
as much sense as "water is bad for you" or "the Earth is
flat." This persistent myth was invented, marketed and publicized by an
industry that profits from a gullible public believing demonstrable falsehoods.
But why would the cancer industry go along with the deception, you might ask?
Because the continued commercial success of the cancer industry depends on
more people getting cancer. In previous articles, I've clearly shown that
the cancer industry has no interest whatsoever in preventing cancer. The
industry, in fact, takes steps to interfere with prevention efforts and thereby
ensure the growth in the number of future cancer patients.
The American Cancer Society, for example, still will not recommend that anyone
take vitamin D supplements, even though the vitamin can prevent nearly 4 out of
5 cancers. The cancer industry simply has no interest in preventing cancer. It
is only interested in treating cancer and profiting from those
treatments. (That's why genuine cancer cures have been routinely suppressed,
censored or discredited in the United States.) Read my book, Natural
Health Solutions and the Conspiracy to Keep You From Knowing About Them, to
learn the shocking truth about how the cancer industry really operates in
The promotion of sunscreen products is a way for the cancer industry to ensure
future profits from the treatment of cancer. The more people use sunscreen
products, the more they'll get cancer. And that's due to two primary
reasons: 1) Sunscreen blocks vitamin D production, a nutrient that strongly
prevents cancer, and 2) Sunscreen products almost always contain cancer-causing
chemicals that are absorbed through the skin and enter the bloodstream where
they cause severe DNA damage, leading to cancer.
Seven important questions
The next time you see some public
service advertisement urging you to smother yourself and your children with
sunscreen chemicals, think hard before taking action. Ask yourself these seven
1) Is the sun really dangerous to humans? If so, how did humans survive for the
last 350,000 years on planet Earth?
2) Have the chemicals used in sunscreen products ever been safety tested or approved
by the FDA? (The answer is no.)
3) Who financially benefits when you keep buying and using sunscreen products?
4) What is the environmental impact of sunscreen chemicals washing off into the
ocean, a lake, a swimming pool or being washed down the drain in your shower?
5) Sunscreen manufacturers say the skin doesn't absorb their chemicals. If
that's true, then how do nicotine patches work? How do transdermal drugs get
absorbed through the skin if sunscreen chemicals don't? (Answer: ALL these
chemicals get absorbed through the skin. The skin is not selective about what
it chooses to absorb.)
6) If the sun is so dangerous, then why is the vitamin generated by sunlight
(vitamin D) so healthy for humans? Why would humans evolve a mechanism for
generating a vitamin from sunlight if we weren't supposed to be exposed to
sunlight in the first place?
7) If sunlight is so dangerous, then why is virtually every living creature on
planet Earth dependent on sunlight for survival? Plants use sunlight to
generate their nutrition, too, and most animals eat either plants or other
animals that originally ate plants. Nearly all life on planet Earth is
powered by sunlight. Why does the cancer industry believe sunlight causes
death when, in reality, sunlight delivers life?
Once you answer these questions, the reality of the situation becomes obvious: Sunlight
is good for you, and sunscreen is a hoax.
Healing Power of Sunlight and Vitamin D This provides tips on how to
safely gauge your level of exposure to sunlight. Don't just rush out and get
burned; boost your nutrition and work up a natural tan as nature intended.
slashes cancer risk by 77 percent
If you choose to buy sunscreen, only buy natural sunscreen products containing no petrochemicals! One brand I recommend is Caribbean Blue Natural
Basics "Sun Shield." You can find more at www.gocaribbeanblue.com
Smearing berries on your skin also works as a natural sunscreen, as does
smearing aloe vera gel on your skin. Amazon Herb Co. distributors use a product
called Camu C Serum as a natural suncreen. It works great! http://www.amazondreams.amazonherb.net
The best sunscreen, however, is an internal sunscreen built with
nutrition. Eat chlorella, spirulina, goji berries, raspberries, blackberries,
blueberries, astaxanthin, carrots and nutrient-rich superfoods to boost your
skin's natural UV protection (takes about 30 days of nutrition to boost skin
