The Environmental Working Group is an activist agency that recently researched 500 of the most popular sunscreen products on the market. It found that although the creams may help stop sunburn, they might be doing more harm than good. For one, they do not block out ultraviolet light. Secondly, the group claims the use of "Vitamin A" in these products may actually speed up the exposure to those UV rays and increase chances for cancer. Many doctors, however, take issue with the new findings.
"I think I would take this one with a grain of salt," says Dermatologist Brett Shulman. "At this point, there does not seem to be a large number of scientific studies that actually confirm what this group is asserting. If anything, most of the studies are really to the contrary."
