Beach Week: Deadly Sunscreens
A study was recently put out about the dangers of sunscreen...yes, you read that correctly. The stuff that's supposed to protect us can also hurt us. Read on:
The Environmental Working Group completed a study stating that sunscreens containing Vitamin A and/or Oxybenzone is causing skin cancer tumors to develop more rapidly. Ironically, this is found in the higher-level SPF sunscreens. The link above provides you with plenty of information on the study, a search engine for your sunscreen, and the best/worst sunscreens.
Note: I will be featuring sunscreens in my posts this week, but these posts were done prior to the study. The sunscreens I used were rated "caution." I will update each post with the sunscreen rating and info.
