  1. SCARY news about what’s ‘protecting’ you from sun damage

    THEY want you to live in fear.

    They want you to be scared of infections… science… and even each other!

    And they REALLY want you to be afraid of going outside.

    Well, friend, today I’m here to DIAL BACK the fear factor… and share the TRUTH about the great outdoors.

    It’s perfect for RECHARGING your soul… AND your body!

    But if you GIVE IN to the fear, you may NEVER get those benefits.

    So, let’s pull back the shades… let the sunlight in… and expose to the daylight what they hope you’ll never see.

    The TRUTH about SUNLIGHT and SUNSCREEN

    When I was a kid, no one ever flipped out over the sun.

    We were practically CHASED out of the house to go play for hours -- and no one ever BASTED us in thick layers of chemical goop over some bogus fear.

    I bet it was the same for you.

    Now, of course, they’ve got everybody BRAINWASHED into believing that you shouldn’t go outside without COATING yourself in sunscreen… and/or COVERING UP like “The Invisible Man.”

    But don’t FALL for it. And certainly don’t SLATHER that oily goo onto your own precious bod.

    Because a recent study shows what happens INSIDE YOUR BODY after your rub in that sunscreen.

    And if you ask me… it’s pretty SCARY!

    Scientists tested just about every common form of sunscreen: lotions, sprays, pumps, you name it. Each contained one or more of 6 common sunscreen chemicals.

    I’m talking about DANGEROUS chemicals… such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, and octocrylene.

    We haven’t known quite HOW dangerous they are to humans – especially since the FDA has long insisted that they don’t really get inside the body from the skin.

    So, they don’t need to be studied too closely… right?

    This latest study proves them wrong, wrong, WRONG.

    ALL 6 were quickly absorbed through the skin… into the body… and into the blood…

    And at levels far HIGHER than the FDA’s so-called threshold for action.

    That’s the limit where they’re SUPPOSED to require those critical safety studies.

    But get this…

    The study’s authors claim that “These findings do not conclude that individuals should refrain from the use of sunscreen.”

    Are you KIDDING me???

    That’s pure insanity!

    Some sunscreen ingredients have been linked to hormone disruption… and even cancer.

    And now that they KNOW they can PENETRATE your protective barrier… a.k.a. your skin… they want you to go ahead and use them anyway?

    NOPE.

    Everyone has different skin types and tones, so there’s no one-size-fits-all formula for safe sun exposure.

    But I’ll tell you what I do.

    First, if I’m going to be out for 20 minutes or less, I don’t put ANYTHING on.

    In fact, I take things off – as much clothes as I can get away with – to get the full effect of healthy sun exposure.

    See, sun exposure triggers 3 key reactions that keep you HEALTHY:

    1. STIMULATES vitamin D production
    2. ARMS the immune system
    3. ACTIVATES artery-opening nitric oxide.

    After 20 minutes, though, I DON’T want to burn… so I’ll retreat to a shady corner or head inside.

    If that’s not possible… like if I’m spending a day at the beach, park, or pool… I’ll use something like the old-fashioned zinc oxide or para-aminobenzoic acid sunscreens.

    You know PABA – that’s the stuff that’ll leave handprints on your body if you don’t put on right, and stain your clothes if you’re not careful?

    EVERYTHING has a downside, after all…

    And if my only other option is chemicals being SLURPED UP by my body… I’ll take a temporary hand tattoo and shirt stain any day.

  2. Feds admit: Skin-protecting sunscreen might be POISONING your body!

    The feds just issued a HUGE confession.

    They admitted that the sunscreens they’ve been URGING you to rub all over your bare bod are shockingly… horrifically… and demonstrably unsafe.

    The FDA now admits that common sunscreen chemicals… including some linked to CANCER and other risks… can penetrate the skin and slide inside your body.

    And they can rapidly reach alarming levels.

    Fortunately, you’ve got another option – a way to get TOTAL sun protection WITHOUT the risks.

    The TRUTH about sunscreen and sun ‘safety’

    Chemicals including oxybenzone, avobenzone, and octocrylene can surpass what’s formally known as the “Threshold of Toxicological Concern,” often many times over, and in as little as two to six hours.

    These are levels that are SUPPOSED TO require more thorough human testing BEFORE being put onto the market, even under industry-friendly government guidelines.

    I can’t help but wonder: Did they REALLY just figure this out now in 2019?

    You can bet your sunburnt bottom they didn’t!

    They HAD to know there would be something wrong with slathering an endocrine-disrupting chemical all over the skin… every 2-4 hours… all summer long.

    I can only guess at the reason they’re finally coming clean

    But I bet it’s NOT about giving you honest science (as usual).

    The problem is probably worse than they thought. Quite possibly, they’re sitting on some research that’s about the explode.

    So today, I’ve got the alternative plan to keep you burn-freeall summer long – and any other time of year – without the use of harmful chemicals.

    And better yet, you can STILL get some safe and essential sun exposure, which will help your body produce vitamin D… stimulate your immune system… and trigger the release of artery-opening nitric oxide.

    Here’s the 3-step plan I follow:

    1. I don’t slather on ANYTHING. Not at first. I make sure I go out and bask, getting 20 minutes of clear exposure, both sides, on as much skin as I dare to show without risking someone calling the cops.
    2. Still no slathering. I cover up with a decent shirt, pants, and hat or sit under an umbrella/on a patio with some shade where I can kick back and enjoy the weather without direct sun exposure.
    3. OK, now I might slather. If I’m out longer in direct sun – like hanging out on the beach – I use sunscreen.

    The feds now say zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the safest options, and maybe that’s what you want.

    Personally, I still use the old PABA-based sunscreens.

    The stuff is awesome: When we were kids, we used to pat each other on the back with it all over our hands, and by the end of the day there would be a really well-defined handprint on the other person’s back.

    Modern art!

    It does stain clothing, though, so you gotta be careful with it. But it’s certainly a heck of a lot safer than the chemical goops that we now know penetrate the skin and slide inside the body.

  3. Follow these new sunscreen rules

    Summer is here and you probably spend more time outdoors. That‘s good news. We can all use the extra vitamin D, according to new research out of Stanford.

    In fact, a new study found that women who took vitamin D/calcium supplements cut their risk of developing melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer. In fact, they cut their odds by 50 percent! And these were women considered "high-risk" for developing melanoma.

    Your body, of course, naturally converts sunshine into vitamin D. So it stands to reason that a little unadulterated sunshine is good for you. It may even protect you against skin cancer. Sounds paradoxical, I know. But experts believe vitamin D blocks cells in your body from mutating, including your skin cells.

    So this summer, aim to spend 20 to 30 minutes outside each day without sunscreen. Morning light is generally gentler. This will give you about 10,000 IU of vitamin D3. You can also get vitamin D into your diet by eating more eggs. Vitamin D is naturally found in egg yolks. Also, try to eat more salmon, tuna, and sardines.

    Also, if you‘re going to the beach, you will need sunscreen at some point. You‘ll want to look up the safest sunscreens that don‘t contain hormone disruptors. Visit the Environmental Working Group‘s website at www.ewg.org for a list of the safest brands on the market.

    So if you haven‘t yet joined the vitamin D bandwagon, now‘s the time to hop on. Go for up to 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 (the form of vitamin D most readily absorbed by the body). You can also get vitamin D into your diet by eating more eggs (naturally found in yolks) and fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and sardines.
