Skin cancer and premature aging are serious effects of overexposure to the sun. But, as Total Health Breakthroughs Editor Melanie Segala points out, sunscreen is not the solution.
Sunscreen is chock full of industrial chemicals that can cause Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s when inhaled. Melanie says a three-year study is planned to find out if they cause the same brain damage when absorbed by the skin. But I don’t plan to wait for the results. And neither should you.
Follow the advice of Dr. Sears and Jon Herring. In their book Your Best Health Under the Sun, they recommend using natural “sun blocks” — shade, clothing, and umbrellas. If you need more protection, go with zinc oxide. It blocks the sun physically instead of chemically.
