Scientists reverse stance on sun and cancer:  Now they admit sunlight can prevent skin cancer.

 Tara Green, posted this item in ‘Natural News‘:

(NaturalNews) Since the 1980s, physicians and cancer groups have regularly warned the public against the potential health dangers of direct sunlight on skin. As a result, many people have stayed out of the sunlight completely, covered their limbs even in warm weather or slathered themselves with UV protection products, all in the interest of lowering their risk of melanomas.

However, more recent findings indicate that this kind of nearly vampiric avoidance of the sun may not benefit your cancer odds after all.

This article  raises important aspects concerning skin cancer,  its causes and preventions. The whole subject deserves reviewing and you will learn a lot from this article. Linked here.

  1. Now that’s a different point of view. It will be interesting to see how many news outlets pick up on this one and if other studies will be done as well.

    • Indeed! It’s a very complex almost paradoxical issue. Certainy controversial. Might be very difficult to separate ‘real’ facts from vested interest ‘facts’.
      Thanks for your comment.

  2. A further post on the subject by Sott. “Is your Sunscreen more Harmful than the Sun?”
    “Most people have enough fear of skin cancer and photo-aging to give tanning salons wide berth, pun intended. But how safe are sunscreens themselves? Weeks after the New York Times exposed the caprice in assignment of sun protection factors (SPF) last year, Sen. Charles Schumer (D- New York) called on the FDA to investigate reports that an ingredient in most sunscreens – retinyl palmitate – actually causes cancer” Ref: http://www.sott.net/articles/show/229305-Is-Your-Sunscreen-More-Harmful-Than-Being-in-the-Sun-
