Sunscreens are Safe

Sunscreens Are Safe

An article in the Sun and News publication recently caught my eye. Recent negative news about sunscreens by some news outlets and non-medical writers has consumers questioning the safety and benefits of sunscreens.

“A review of all scientific studies (from 1966 to 2003) shows no evidence of a relationship between sunscreen use and increased risk of melanoma”.

Sunscreens are not Card Blanche to bake in the sun. They do however have an important role in our daily lives.

I highly recommend that you read the entire article in the Sun and Skin News publication by Perry Robins
