Does Sunscreen Prevent or Cause Skin Cancer?

Does Sunscreen Prevent or Cause Skin Cancer?

Statistical research has revealed that skin cancer rates in Australia are the highest in the world. The argument can be made that the level of UV light today is higher than it was 50 or 100 years ago due to a reduction of the ozone layer. Or you can blame it on environmental factors such as elevation, latitude, and cloud cover. Or better still, you can even make the argument that people with fair skin, with a northern European heritage appear to be most susceptible for sun burns and skin cancers.

All are valid arguments, but there is still no denying the fact that the highest incidences of skin cancer actually occur in countries where the use of chemical sunscreens containing benzophenone and oxybenzone and PABA have been promoted the most. The irony is that the chemical sunscreen industry makes money by selling sunscreen lotion products which is promoted to prevent skin cancer, but the ingredients used actually contain cancer-causing chemicals.

Chemicals such as benzophonones, oxybenzone and cinnamates are used as such UV absorbing ingredients.

A Super Natural Summer Glow

This article may disturb some readers. It contains information about the shocking truth of conventional plant and animal farming techniques.
Most crops in Australia are grown with the aid of toxic synthetic chemicals including pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and fungicides. Toxic residues from these chemicals are found on conventionally grown fruit, herbs, plants and vegetables and even snacks, skin care products and clothing.

Most farm animals raised, are being injected with hormones, antibiotics and other chemicals to increase production and to treat animal deceases. These hormones (e.g growth hormones) will be found in conventionally meat produce, and research have shown to have harmful effects on human health.

Through organic farming, we are able to improve our land and environment through better soil combination, cleaner waterways, protection of native biodivesity, improve agricultural processes, produce better quality plants and food ingredients and show greater compassion to animal welfare.
