Think sunlight alone can cause skin cancer? So did I! But according to the guy in this video, it doesn't. In fact, it actually protects against skin cancer! Watch and see for yorself. Very interesting stuff.

Watch this video

I heard it's our diet in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere there's tribal people out in the sun all day and they don't get cancer.

I didn't watch the whole video but I have believed for a long time that putting on sunscreen couldn't be good for you. Have never been comfortable with applying a chemical to my skin that stops my body from doing something God intended it to. I also believe it is healthy to spend time in the sun, good for your body and good for your soul.

My family spends a lot of time in the sun, winter and summer (Ontario). We go in or find shade when I begin to feel a bit reddish. As I am the fairest, I am a good barometer for the rest of the crew. I am 40, sporting a nice little tan and most people guess my age in my late 20's so so much for it aging you too. My children have never used sunscreen.

My mom and dad are in their late 60's with a lifetime of no sunscreen and no sign of cancer and are aging no faster and perhaps better than their sunscreen wearing, sun fearing friends.

Skin cancer is caused by the petroleum products that we apply because some company told us to. This is why Australia has the highest skin cancer rate in the world. It is also the place where Coppertone setup shop with heavy marketing investments.

You can trace most cancer back to the mutated products we put on our skin and ingest. Natural is always better but we are conditioned to consume corporate crap products as if they we better than natural solutions. Technocratic society is ruining the simple life that we should be living.

Think about how much time and effort goes into to telling us not to eat fruits and veggies and to stay out of the sun. It is sad.

Some think it is the sunscreen used to prevent cancer that is actually causing cancer
www.aolnews.com...
"WASHINGTON (May 24) -- Almost half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A or its derivatives, according to an evaluation of those products released today.

AOL News also has learned through documents and interviews that the Food and Drug Administration has known of the potential danger for as long as a decade without alerting the public, which the FDA denies."

Also Senator Dodd is pushing for sunscreen labeling www.ewg.org...
And Senator SChumer want disclosure on the chemicals used in sunscreen, because even this senator thinks they cause cancer

Schumer Wants FDA to Release Findings on Sunscreen Chemicals

June 14, 2010 by senatus

cache.daylife.com...

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) “on Sunday called on the FDA to reveal findings on a possible link between a chemical found in most sunscreens and skin cancer,” Reuters reports.

Bottom line, The sun IS good for you. it provides vitamin D.. but moderation is key.

Another good example is the old farmers out in the fields all day. They aren't slathering on toxic sunscreen, who has the time? They don't put on anything. But they eat very natural home cooked foods. Some of them are out there working into their eighties, easily.

I always worry about the chemicals in the sunscreens, when you get hot and sweat, all that stuff is absorbing into your body. That can't be healthy. Just like mosquito repellent. You don't want to soak it in.

When I go out to mow the lawn on the tractor, I will spend about 2 or 3 hours in the full sun sometimes, in the middle of the day, when the mosquitoes are the lowest and the sun is the highest. I will put on NEEM oil, mixed with pure aloe, only to protect from the bugs. I haven't been burning at all, just a little of a tan.

According to the cancer societies, and the sun screen industry, I should be burned to a crisp, but I'm not at all. And I am a natural blond, with British ancestory... but I do have a very good diet

I must be the exception then. I live in the once beautiful gulf coast working construction, and I spend about 8-11 hours outside every day(depening on wether or not i go fishing before or after work). Weeeeell I dont use sunscreen, everynow and then just to shutup and nagging women, but last month or so I had a nice lump removed from the underside of my forearm. Turns out that it was skin cancer. yay.

I don't even need to watch the video to know that they are wrong. ANY form of radiation has the potential to cause cancer, notice that I said potential.

Odd place. Just in case you have a genetic predisposition to cancer, make sure you are getting your fruits, and vegies, and lots of natural foods, not the chemical frankenfoods they are trying to pass off as healthy. Read your labels, and I hope it doesn't come back in any way. My hopes are for your health

Exactly.

The thing is, I think that the benefits from vitamin-d and potential cancer reductions even outside of skin cancer outweigh the possible skin cancer which can come about from being exposed to radiation from the sun.

WOW!!!! thanks for the video! I have always wondered why the heck we have been schooled to wear sunscreen to block the sun from our skin when it is our number 1.........not number 2, NUMBER 1 way of getting vitamin D.

Targeting cancer Another interesting property of liposomes are their natural ability to target cancer. The endothelial wall of all healthy human blood vessels are encapsulated by endothelial cells that are bound together by tight junctions. These tight junctions stop any large particle in the blood from leaking out of the vessel. Tumour vessels do not contain the same level of seal between cells and are diagnostically leaky. This ability is known as the Enhanced Permeability and Retention effect. Liposomes of certain sizes, typically less than 400 nm, can rapidly enter tumour sites from the blood, but are kept in the bloodstream by the endothelial wall in healthy tissue vasculature. Anti-cancer drugs such as Doxorubicin (Doxil), Camptothecin and Daunorubicin (Daunoxome) are currently being marketed in liposome delivery systems. [edit] Manufacturing

Yes sir vitamin D is important.

I also work construction(laid off now though) and the most important key to avoiding sunburn was to get your base tan as early in the year as possible. By doing that, you eliminate the need to wear that junk.

On the news they give out a UV forecast everyday, and in recent years told you how long it will take you to 'burn'. Today it was 9 for my area and that supposedly means you will 'burn' in 15 minutes. To me it just seems like a way to sell more product. Granted, some people have less tolerance due to their genetic makeup, but the solution to that is lightcolored, airy, longsleeved clothes with a wide brimmed hat. Believe it or not, that will keep you cool along with lots of fluids if you plan on being outside in the sun all day.

Anyways, i think the best way to avoid sunburn is to stay fully hydrated. And get your body prepared before the most direct rays arrive, ie base tan. Sunscreen does help, but not too much if you're starting your tan in mid July.

I'm on the fence of whether or not it'll cause cancer because as I was looking at the tubes of sunscreen I got around the house, its almost the same ingredients as shampoo or lotion or bodywash. If thats the case then all our regular hygeine products will eventually cause cancer. Although, as I work in roofing, every product we use is known to the state of California to cause cancer and labeled as such. Products are all petroleum based as well. I just don't see that on the vaseline or any other kind of thing that contains petrolatum in the store. Just the industrial stuff. Who knows, maybe they put the MSDS on every container soon? Think that would put a hit in sales?

On a side note, I don't know for sure, but does anyone think its possible that UV radiation will penetrate your clothing anyway but simply lessen the effects? Being that you're damned if you do and damned if you don't

What is the rate of skin cancer among native african tribes? What is the rate among african americans? I know aboriginal people have bad cancer rates, but what do they eat?

raw meat that is kept under mud for a few weeks or barbecued like jerky,
if i am correct is their main source and potatoes,

maybe we shouldn't eat white meat, a science prof once told me that pork and chicken is VERY bad

This was an interesting video, but full of generalizations and negative affirmations. I think it is likely that getting vitamin D is more important than avoiding sun exposure, BUT what about those of us that take our vitamin D in pill form everyday?

He says very pale skinned people might only need to spend 15 minutes per day in the sun to get enough vitamin D, and then goes on to say that pale skin means the person is unhealthy. Contrary to his urgings, even with the best of nutrition, I am not going to use a tanning bed in the winter. Why should I do something potentially dangerous (not to mention I think tanning is unattractive) when I can just take a vitamin?

I can appreciate that he is trying to get out some important information, but I found him to be seriously annoying.
