    I actually have heard the increase in skin cancer is from the increase in sunscreen use. It makes people feel safe staying in the sun longer. Also, the chemicals in the sunscreen are baking into the skin causing cancer. I recommend using raw coconut oil to lessen free radical damage and covering up or going inside instead of staying in the sun too long or using sunscreen. Also, a “clean” body won’t get skin cancer. The body tries to eliminate toxins through the skin when the cancer happens. One last thing, I heard is that skin cancer and other cancers are on the rise because of a lack of vitamin D from the sun due to avoiding it. (A pill cannot replicate it well because vitamin D from the sun gives 5 cofactors not found in pills.)

    Sorry if this post was too long.

    P.S. If you go in the sun, it’s essential to eat a lot of plants (fruits/veggies) as this provides some natural protection.

    If you are going to wear a sunscreen get an organic vegan one. Don’t rub any old carcinogenic crap into your skin.

  6. [...] have a thing for infographics, even ones that bring bad news, like this one from Girlie Girl Army.  Skin cancer is serious business.  I get my moles checked twice a year and sunscreen is my best [...]

    antioxidant loading can help protect against burns- which are sun damage. I don’t think tans are!
