  1. 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.

  2. 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.
