Sunscreen Dangers?

SpecialChem / Nick Morante – Jun 8, 2007

In recent years we have been bombarded by reports of the extreme dangers of Sun and UV Exposure. We are also told that we should protect ourselves as much as possible from the dangers of skin cancer buy wearing products that contain sunscreens. Although the sales of sunscreens and other protective sun products have really been flooding the market, the incidence of skin cancer in the United States has seemed to increase rather than decrease. Some reports say that this figure has almost tripled. I certainly agree that we should be concerned about skin cancer and the dangers of over-exposure to the sun's damaging rays, but statement that are made in some articles I read on the internet are just without merit and contain very few substantiating facts. I read an article recently that sunscreen products can do more harm than good and that some products even contain toxic chemicals that penetrate the skin and may even increase the risk of illness. The article states that you should avoid chemicals such as PABA derivatives, Dioxybenzone, Oxybenzone and Titanium Dioxide.
