Nope. Just saying that not all are the same.

I'm special! So are you...

They don't mean that you have to lay out in a bathing suit during the winter to get a suntan. My Chinese doctor told me as long as the sun was coming through my skin for about 20 minutes a day, that would be fine. You can do that by sitting outside all bundled up with just your face exposed to the sun.

But in the video, he encourages everyone to use tanning beds in winter. Probably your Chinese doctor is right. I'm talking about what was claimed in the video, though.

Hi Level,

The reason dark skinned people burn less than light skin people is because they have more melanin in the skin cells, which works as a natural sunscreen, and you are right less burns = less damage.

Watch this video

It is a lack of Nitriloside content in food...
...and a low pH diet.

First to the op thanks for bringing this onboard, this is valuable info.

I am further encouraged to better my nutritional habits. The Vitamin D info was interesting and I did not know it was so essential in minimizing 5 types of cancer.

Toolstar, thanks for those links, excellent!

So the sunscreen damaging factors are one thing, and I'm glad I read the articles because I use sunblock often and I just read the ingredients from my "all natural" sunblock and it says titanium dioxide. The article on aol regarding nano-titatnium dioxide is very revealing......I'm just going to manage the amount of time I'm in the sun now, and if I have to be any longer I'll put on a white L sleeve shirt and my landscaper hat, and take some high quality B supplements.

Peer reviewed studies(170) are showing that a number of nano products cause harm to living organisms. This NTDioxide destroys DNA and!

Halfway through, Trouiller became alarmed: Consuming the nano-titanium dioxide was damaging or destroying the animals' DNA and chromosomes. The biological havoc continued as she repeated the studies again and again. It was a significant finding:

What really get's me here is the FDA shenanigans!

First they test it 10 years ago and determine it increases cancer rates then lie about it, and these people determine what's good for us by way of food AND drugs?!?!?

"There was enough evidence 10 years ago for FDA to caution consumers against the use of vitamin A in sunscreens," Jane Houlihan, EWG's senior vice president for research, told AOL News.

"FDA launched this one-year study, completed their research and now 10 years later, they say nothing about it, just silence."

On Friday, the FDA said the allegations are not true.

"We have thoroughly checked and are not aware of any studies," an FDA spokesperson told AOL News. She said she checked with bosses throughout the agency and found no one who knew of the vitamin A sunscreen research being done by or on behalf of the agency.

But documents from the FDA and the National Toxicology Program showed that the agency had done the research.

Profits before people.....

I was reading Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know About awhile back and remember it saying something about sun screens/lotions. He claims that the 5 most common ingredients in these products actually cause cancer.

The skin cancer and sun light connection has always been a little hard to swallow. Humans have after all been under the sun for millennium.

That said the sun did give me many freckles from repeated burns etc. I wouldn’t stop wearing my sun screen just yet.

Hogwash. I'd find another doctor. If he thinks only genetics plays a role in anything, he's a complete idiot.

Eat right, exposure to sun in moderation (don't keep getting burned), and keep toxins low & anyone can remain skin cancer free. A *healthy* body will repair itself if it has the tools (nutrition) and you don't keep abusing it with repeated burning & toxic chemicals.

All the info in this vid was made available more than 5 years ago on the NaturalNews site in a printed interview called "The Healing Power of Sunlight: An interview with Dr. Michael Holick", not to mention several articles over the years. Check out the Natural News Book List.

WOW...This thread is an embarrassment to ATS. I started reading responses expecting people to be talking some sense into the OP but most of you support it based on some kind of special relationship with the sun and mother nature and back it up with absolutely nothing. I hate big business also but you can't blame them for everything because it feels right.

Dark skinned people don't get skin cancer as often and also don't burn like white people. Don't burn = less damage = less skin cancer. I know there's a good scientific reason but I don't feel like looking it up. Try google before making such rediculous claims such as it must be the healthy natural food they eat.

I didn't realize there was this many uneducated hippies on this site. OK, I'm done...I don't think I could sleep tonight without saying something. And I never post on here...


I'm not a hippie or uneducated but I do think there is a link between proper nutrition and the bodies ability to fend for itself in the toxic soup will live in.

As for the "rediculous" claims asserted by ATS posters; there are many studies suggesting a bodies immune system cannot properly function when it is constantly being bombarded with substances it was not meant to digest or be exposed to. Autointoxication is one name for the condition.

I find it intriguing that a spike in many adverse conditions to the body coincide with our history of industrialization as well as food preservation methods.

Sunscreen was not even developed until the 1960's. Why aren't skin cancer rates going down? Why are humans the only animal on the planet that need sunscreen? Isn't it indeed possible that there is a link between our constant manipulation of the natural resources made available to us and our alarming rate of declining health?

Watch this video

Stop spreading ignorance. Skin cancer is caused by over exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Why don't you go sit out in the sun all day and tell your sunburned skin that the sun is harmless? Here's an idea: open up a book rather than watching some idiot's video on youtube? Let me know how that works out.

Apparently you didn't watch the vid. Mike Adams says flat out that over exposure (burning) is bad.

Here's an idea: try taking in the info before you start flaming someone.

I believe that this can be true because I live in a place where there is ample sunlight even in winters. Many people don't use sunscreens here and they do not have skin cancer. I can't say about people who use sunscreens though, because I don't use it myself. Sunlight causes tanning of the skin, sun spots and sometimes boils too, but skin cancer? I am not sure.
Sunscreens contain many chemicals and they tend to cause reaction when exposed to extreme temperatures. Who knows it is this reaction with the chemicals on the skin that cause more irritation to the skin. Whenever I try using sunscreen my skin burns like hell and I have stopped using it altogether. Homemade beauty treatments seem to be more effective.

I absolutely believe sunlight in moderation combined with good nutrition is the key factor.

Having said that, some people are simply genetically pre-disposed to having a higher cancer risk, so there will always be exceptions!

Don't get sunburnt people, that is just stupid, anyone can see you are doing damage when you are glow in the dark beetroot red. Putting your skin through 2-3 days of intense frying 'cos you are on holidays and you need to get tanned before going home is dumb. Get a nice moderate healthy tan built up over a long period, let your body do its thing and build up the melanin naturally.

I started taking D3 supps last winter and also this winter, combined with lots of orange juice (vitamin C) and have only caught one cold.. it lasted about 8 hours

I absolutely endorse this video

Awesome find my friend!

I have always had a problem with the whole skin cancer due to sun exposure belief, God made everything to work perfectly.

I am very fair skinned and burn waaaay too easy, but i always have and always will refuse to cover my body chemicals. Same with bug spray, I don't do it.

Thank you for sharing this, I shall look further into it and have shared the video on fb.

Another fat lie. Sun does cause skin cancer in highly polluted areas where the ozone layer and atmosphere is all messed up.

Tribes don't usually inhabit such areas so their problems are a bit different and shouldn't be used as reference. In another words they "use" a different sun than the one we use so to speak.

Of course that there is a whole cosmetics industry all over this that profits in making things sound worst than what they really are. But it's a fact that if you spend most of your time at the beach of a big city your chances of developing skin cancer are higher than of a person that doesn't.

So be prudent and don't think that by spending your entire day cooking bellow LA's sun (or any other big polluted city like it) unprotected you will be doing too much of a favor for your skin because you won't.

I'm 1/4 jamaican 3/4 white british and have never had a problem with sunburn. I can play football in the baking sun as long as the suns up.

Then again i do end up getting sunstroke ... I guess thats for being big headed about it too my white mates

I apologize if anyone posted this in the thread but this is very little known and interesting research too:

the link

Melanoma Incidence and Frequency Modulation (FM) Broadcasting

Experimental Dermatology Unit
Department of Neuroscience
Karolinska Institute
Stockholm, Sweden

The results from this analysis support the findings of
Dolk et al.1 and show that melanoma incidence is correlated with public FM broadcasting—not only on a local scale, but also for entire countries.

The results of the analysis also show that melanoma incidence is a function of the exposure time to FM broadcasting and a function of the number of active FM stations available at each location. We predict that the East European countries that adopted the 87–108-MHz band in 1992 will show increasing melanoma rates. These frequencies should be avoided for public broadcasting.

Supposedly moles can be triggered into becoming skin cancer by too much sunlight / UV.

I still wouldn't spend too long out there considering the fact that even if it doesn't cause cancer, you can still get horribly burned and unnecessarily damaged lower-skin layers.

Good video. Long winded, but worth the watch. I already hated sunscreen on me since I was a kid, and with the truth out there, I can happily be without it.

This is actually well explained, and goes into detail how to safely get your needed sun exposure. Watch the whole video.

Thank you for posting this.
