3 Reasons Why Sunscreen Might Be Bad For Your Health!

1) Sunscreen blocks the production of melanin (the pigment causing a protective tan to form), resulting in a higher risk of skin cancer.


2) Sunscreen blocks the production of vitamin D. A deficiency of vitamin D weakens the immune system and increases the risk of heart disease and cancer.

In children especially, vitamin D deficiency is also correlated with tooth decay and crooked teeth.

3) Many of the chemicals found in sunscreens are actually carcinogenic (cancer causing) and oestrogenic.

WARNING - If you see any of the following ingredients, steer clear: benzophenones (dixoybenzone, oxybenzone), PABA and PABA esters (ethyl dihydroxy propyl PAB, glyceryl PABA, p-aminobenzoic acid, padimate-O or octyl dimethyl PABA), cinnamates (cinoxate, ethylhexyl p-methoxycinnamate, octocrylene, octyl methoxycinnamate), salicylates (ethylhexyl salicylate, homosalate, octyl salicylate), Digalloyl trioleate, Menthyl anthranilate and Avobenzone.

It is absolutely vital that you get educated on the basic health of your family, the mighty dollar tends to cloud many businesses sound judgment where it concerns your good health.

Protect your immune system with 15 minutes of direct sunshine daily, else you can supplement.
