    Perhaps you could be controversial and challenging the common misconception that people are getting so called cancer from the sun.You could research the many studies done that challenge the view than people are getting skin cancer in the form of melanoma from the sun, but none of these studies will be aired on the mainstream media because the powers that be do not want the public being educated on this matter.Do you really think they want to stoop cancer? Cancer is big business too much money at stake to come up with a cure now, so they have to keep it going and suppresses natural cancer cures.If we expose our skin too much to the sun without covering up then it is like anything else done to excess, they will be consequences and skin cancer can arise. But these are very small cases.The true reason people are getting skin cancer is because of the use of sunscreens with SPF numbers. Look at the labels of sunscreens and read the damaging hormone-disrupting chemical oxybenzone which is toxic and people are rubbing on their skin it then penetrates the skin and enters the bloodstream. But the most alarming disclosure in this year’s report is the finding that vitamin A and its derivatives, retinol and retinyl palmitate, may speed up the cancer that sunscreen is used to prevent.A dangerous additiveThe industry includes vitamin A in its sunscreen formulations because it is an anti-oxidant that slows skin aging. But the EWG researchers found the initial findings of an FDA study of vitamin A’s photocarcinogenic properties, meaning the possibility that it results in cancerous tumours when used on skin exposed to sunlight. “In that yearlong study, tumours and lesions developed up to 21 percent faster in lab animals coated in a vitamin A-laced cream than animals treated with a vitamin-free cream,” the report said. The conclusion came from EWG’s analysis of initial findings released last fall by the FDA and the National Toxicology Program, the federal government’s principle evaluator of substances that raise public health concerns.EWG’s conclusions were subsequently scrutinized by outside toxicologists.Based on the strength of the findings by FDA’s own scientists, many in the public health community say they can’t believe nor understand why the agency hasn’t already notified the public of the possible danger.”There was enough evidence 10 years ago for FDA to caution consumers against the use of vitamin A in sunscreens,” Jane Houlihan, EWG’s senior vice president for research, told AOL News.”FDA launched this one-year study, completed their research and now 10 years later, they say nothing about it, just silence.”On Friday, the FDA said the allegations are not true.”We have thoroughly checked and are not aware of any studies,” an FDA spokesperson told AOL News. She said she checked with bosses throughout the agency and found no one who knew of the vitamin A sunscreen research being done by or on behalf of the agency. But documents from the FDA and the National Toxicology Program showed that the agency had done the research. “Retinyl palmitate was selected by (FDA’s) Centre for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition for photo-toxicity and photocarcinogenicity testing based on the increasingly widespread use of this compound in cosmetic retail products for use on sun-exposed skin,” said an October 2000 report by the National Toxicology Program.FDA’s own website said the animal studies were done at its National Centre for Toxicological Research in Jefferson, Ark. And it was scientists from the FDA centre and National Toxicology Program who posted the study data last fall. In a perfect worldThe ideal sunscreen would completely block the UV rays that cause sunburn, immune suppression and damaging free radicals. It would remain effective on the skin for several hours and not form harmful ingredients when degraded by UV light, the report said. National Cancer InstituteGraph of melanoma of the skin rates from 1975 to 2006. APC stands for annual percent change and AAPC stands for average annual percent change.But in the U.S., there is currently no sunscreen that meets all of these criteria. European countries have more chemical combinations to offer, but in the U.S. the major choice is between the “chemical” sunscreens, which have inferior stability, penetrate the skin and may disrupt the body’s hormone systems, and “mineral” sunscreens zinc and titanium dioxide. Increasingly, as AOL News reported in March, the industry is using titanium dioxide that is made nanosized, which a growing number of researchers believe have serious health implications.
