The sun has been worshiped and honored since ancient times by many religious, cultural and spiritual ceremonies. And although we may not be performing traditional sun dances or praying to the sun deities, our devotion to the sun is undeniable! But as we seek out the sun at the beach, by the pool, on the golf course or ski slopes, the occasional sunburn becomes inescapable.

Of course conventional sunscreens do a great job of protecting us from UVB rays; however, this is a problem. Because it is the UVB rays that our bodies need for vitamin D production. Not to mention that Vitamin D is protective against cancer. 

There is another problem with conventional sunscreens – they cause photosensitivity. And photosensitivity is a leading cause of skin cancer. From The Truth About The Sun, Sunscreens and Skin Cancer:

An FDA report contains the following list of substances that cause photosensitivity (or have photo-reactive agents in them) and that can cause skin cancer in the case of chronic sun exposure while using them:

  • Medications
  • Food additives
  • Deodorants
  • Antibacterial soaps
  • Petroleum products (including Vaseline)
  • Antihistamines
  • Cold and allergy medicines
  • Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin (Amigesic), ibuprofen (Motrin), Aleve (naproxen sodium), celecoxib (Celebrex), diclofenac (Voltaren), etodolac (Lodine)
  • Antibiotics, including the tetracyclines and sulfonamides
  • Sunscreens containing bergamot oil, sandalwood oil, benzophenones, PABA, cinnamates, salicylates, anthranilates, PSBA, mexenone, and oxybenzone

If the FDA and other groups such as The American Cancer Foundation are only interested in protecting the general public, then why aren’t they looking at the chemical ingredients which are known to cause photosensitivity and that are in the products being recommended?
