Update of June 18, 2011:
The Environmental Working Group's
2011 sunscreen report is out, and it
list which sunscreen lotions are safe
and which are toxic.  It is posted at

Work in progress concerning my "opinion" on this:
One of the better (and free) nutritional articles
regarding "internal sun protection" does also market
some of their products. I am not endorsing them and
do not get any "compensation" of any type from them.
And while the article was written in 2007 I do not
agree with "all sunscreen lotions being bad". Please
note the before mention EWG report that sorts that
out with regard to that aspect.  This article also
mentions which foods to use and so is worth a read.


The sunscreen myth:
How sunscreen products actually promote cancer

Another easy and recommended read is the free
‎"Sunlight" article from "Beyond Health" posted at
http://www.beyondhealth.com/articles.aspx
 
This is complicated and obscured by the fact that over
one third of the vitamins and supplements on the 
market today are bogus" ( 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d ,5e).


But as a report from 1999 shows (5 pdf page 60 )
this has been known for over a decade and I doubt
that it is about to change any time soon.




Another "complication" that can obscure this situation
is the manner in which toxic chemical combination's

can work with infectious agent combination's.

You might find it easier to review "

by scrolling down to the section that starts with;

"To simplify the complexity of this controversy"


The Toxic Lotto is a sub-page of;

Additionally;

Sun exposure (in moderation) is needed for "good health" (1) and
you need certain nutrients that help to protect your skin (2).  So
while many sunscreens are ineffective and some are even contain
toxic chemicals (3) just as about one half of the personal care
products that are labelled "organic" or "natural" that you put on
your skin, have been found to contain cancer causing toxic
chemicals (4). There is another issue of many of the vitamins
and nutritional supplements being toxic, ineffective and over
priced (5 with 5 related articles  of June 17, 2011»).

An independent laboratory has conducted a study of the 50 most
popular multivitamins and revealed that one in three does not contain
the amount of nutrients they claim (5a, 5b, 5c, 5d ,5e).  But do not
expect that change any time soon.  This has been known for over a
decade and battles over "Overhauling the fda" have resulted in bogus
legislation called "The Food Safety Act".

 The "revelations" of this combined information has caused scientists
to finally reverse their stance on sun exposure causing cancer (6).
How ever, another issue is "The Organic Scam" of our food supply. A
part of the"behind the scenes battle" is now posted with reports on the
"political interference of science"  in government agencies of the
Center for Disease Control, The Foods and Drug Administration,
the Environmental Protection Agency and a host of others. While
the current battle of the "Chemical Safety Legislation" roars with
the silence of the main stream news media, I tell the plainly, know
thine enemies and know thy friends.

Thankfully, the Coast To Coast AM Talk Radio has been addressing
many of these issues with a listener bas of over 15 million listeners
and broadcasting to over 500 cities in the USA, alone.  Tune in to
that show, for current information. http://www.coasttocoastam.com/

I did not see any information on adequate nutrition

Important FYI:
"A 1999 landmark study reported in the

97.5 percent of supplements they studied were

Raymond Francis at Beyond Health has forgotten
more about this than I know. And yes, he does
sell supplements and no I do not get any
compensation from recommending him. 
But his free reports and news letters have
been a tramendous help to me.

The bottom line is that we need some sun exposure to keep us healthy
and we need the proper nutrition so that our immune system can not only
protect us, but also make Vitamin D from the sun.



There is an excellent book by Zane Kime, MD titled Sunlight.
that is highly recommended by other experts that I respect. But

with my macular degeneration, I have not actually read this book.

CDC Finds 97 Percent of Americans Contaminated by Sunscreens

FYI: The following is a
ROUGH Draft of a report I wrote from my draft folder.
It was a work in progress. My apologies for not having the 
finished report to post. A hard drive crash ate it, over a year ago.

Copy / paste follows

Sunscreens, Tanning Lotions and
Nutrition, Revelations On Skin Cancer And Toxic Chemical Exposures

Abstract Overview:

So far as UV rays causing skin cancer,
I believe that it is only a small factor, among many more important
ones that are usually ignored. From toxic chemicals, infectious
agents, inadequate nutrition and genetics versus epigenetics.




The Center For Disease Control has found the 97% of American's

are contaminated with toxic chemicals found in sunscreen lotions.

Antibacterial soaps have toxic chemicals in them that have been 
found in many Americans and can also kill good bacteria that
protect the skin.
In simple terms, your genetic response can be modified by 

nutrition and the "switching" of your genetic code is called "epigenetics"
Nutrition (from my Cyber-Med Perspective) is one complex combination
that interacts with other complex combination interactions of toxic
chemicals and combination's of infectious agents, and radiation
exposure as well as genetic predisposition and variations of the
genetically predisposed response from the genetic signaling, known
as epigenetics.

There is an excellent book by Zane Kime, MD titled Sunlight.
that is highly recommended by other experts.

Toxic Chemical Exposures:


The Center for Disease Control (CDC) released a new study
showing that nearly all Americans are contaminated with oxybenzone,
a widely-used sunscreen ingredient. This chemical so far has been
linked to allergies, hormone disruption, and cell damage, as well as
low birth weight in baby girls whose mothers are exposed during
pregnancy. (NaturalNews, Friday, April 11, 2008)

Today, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released the .
www.ewg.org/node/21719 - 27k - Jun 24, 2007

And then there are the fact that about half of the personal care
products that are said to be "natural" or "organic" also have
known cancer causing chemicals in them.

In reference:
Skin Deep (main page) is a safety guide to cosmetics and personal
care products brought to you by researchers at the
Environmental Working Group. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/


A chemical called "triclosan" from antibacterial soap (and many
other products) has been found in about four out of five American's.
Triclosan is used in every thing from toothpaste to keyboards.

Antibacterial soaps and body washes containing the chemical 

triclosan don’t have extra health benefits compared with regular 
soap and water, the Food and Drug Administration said on its Web site.

Research (Rense article 2005) (PDF download) also
suggests that the reaction of triclosan with chlorine could
be producing highly chlorinated dioxins in the presence
of sunligh

When the " triclosan" from antibacterial soap is combined with
chloroform from chlorine in the water and then exposed to UV light
it turns into a dioxin. Of which is a family of chemicals that are
mostly known to cause cancer.


Now you might think that since you only drink bottled of
filtered water that you are out of harms way. But in a ten minute
shower you can absorb the equivalent of drinking eight glasses
of chlorinated water.
Google search terms;
"body absorbs how much water from shower" or short Video link

Worse yet, many suntan lotions contain triclosan, as reported by
the Environmental Working group and the
"Skin Deep - triclosan" web page http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/


Nutrition:

The benefits of sunscreen are a myth. Proponents say sunscreen prevents sunburn, but in fact, the real cause of sunburn is not merely UV exposure: It is a lack of antioxidant nutrition. Start eating lots of berries and microalgae (spirulina, astaxanthin, blue-green algae, etc.), and you'll build up an internal sunscreen that will protect your skin from sunburn from the inside out. Sunburn is actually caused by nutritional deficiencies that leave the skin vulnerable to DNA mutations from radiation, but if you boost your nutrition and protect your nervous system with plant-based nutrients, you'll be naturally resistant to sunburn. The same nutrients, by the way, also protect the optic nerve and eyes from radiation damage. That's why the consumption of berries and carrots, for example, has historically been associated with healthy eye function. (The same nutrients that protect the eyes also protect the skin.)

The scientific evidence, however, shows quite clearly that sunscreen actually promotes cancer by blocking the body's absorption of ultraviolet radiation, which produces vitamin D in the skin. Vitamin D, as recent studies have shown, prevents up to 77 of ALL cancers in women (breast cancer, colon cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, brain tumors, multiple myeloma... you name it). Meanwhile, the toxic chemical ingredients used in most sunscreen products are actually carcinogenic and have never been safety tested or safety approved by the FDA. They get absorbed right through the skin

probability of going to a vitamin store and, without a lot of
knowledge, being able to select a quality product is low."

Modifying your genetic response
Genetics Versus Epigenetics:


In general, it is plausible that some "food
allergies" are due to the interactions of the total
body burden of toxic chemicals that are present
in an individual. Of which is another issue, in itself.
As shown by variances in "genetic switching"
(Epigenetics) from nutritional supplements that
cause a variance in the "genetic" predisposition
for a given reaction.

By Janet Raloff Science News 19 May 2010

Manufacturers have been adding the germ fighter triclosan to soaps, hand
washes, and a range of other products for years. But here's a dirty
little secret: Once it washes down the drain, that triclosan can spawn
dioxins.

Dioxins come in 75 different flavors, distinguished by how many chlorine
atoms dangle from each and where those atoms have attached (their
locations indicated by the numbers in the front part of a dioxin's
name). The most toxic is 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, or TCDD.
Some related kin bearing four to eight chlorines are also toxic, just
less so.
