Many Sunscreens May SPEED UP Skin Cancer

Almost half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A or its derivatives, according to an evaluation of those products released today.

    Yikes! Pretty disturbing, thanks for posting this.
    The non-profit Environmental Working Group that released this study maintains a database of the best and worst sunscreens on their website at http://www.ewg.org/2010sunscreen/
    EWG’s fourth annual Sunscreen Guide gives low marks to the current crop of sunscreen products, with a few notable exceptions. EWG researchers recommend only 39 – 8 percent – of 500 beach and sport sunscreens for this season.
