sunscreen

  1. Sunscreen contains dangerous chemicals

    Memorial Day is barely over and summer's not even officially here yet -- but the sounds of summer are already all around you.

    There's the crack of a ball off a baseball bat... the hiss of a steak when it first hits the grill... and the yammer of the halfwits who won't shut up about sunscreen.

    Open the papers or turn on the TV and you've probably already seen the annual Chicken Little act well under way. Those clowns act as if you'll burn to a crisp if you dare to set foot outside your home without first marinating yourself in a thick layer of chemical crud.

    But before you even consider coating your own tender flesh with that goo, there's something you need to know: The sun won't cause cancer... but that SUNSCREEN sure will!

    It's not just me saying it anymore. Environmental Working Group says four out of five sunscreens contain dangerous chemicals or untrue claims about their so-called protection.

    One common ingredient, retinyl palmitate, is a form of vitamin A that must've sounded like a good idea at the time. Vitamin A is good for the skin, right?

    Not this stuff!

    You couldn't put a worse ingredient in a sunscreen if you tried, because retinyl palmitate can actually ACCELERATE the growth of skin tumors, especially when exposed to UV light.

    Another, oxybenzone, is a known endocrine disrupter that can screw with your sex life and mess with the development of children.

    If there's any good news, it's that my message is finally getting out. Americans are now rejecting sunscreen en masse, with just 14 percent of men and 30 percent of women saying they use it regularly before they go out, according to a new survey.

    I'm not usually the "go with the flow" type, but in this case Mr. and Mrs. Average have it exactly right.

    EWG has a list of supposedly "safe" sunscreens, but why would you need to screen the sun anyway? It's vital to your health and LACK of sun can promote everything from cancer to heart disease.

    The only protection from the sun you really need is a little common sense: Seek shade when you start to turn pink.

  2. Common household chemicals causing infertility

    Could TOOTHPASTE be the cure for baby fever?

    I've fought infectious diseases all around the world, but I've never seen anything spread faster than baby fever.

    Because it seems to travel from a woman's ovaries to her brain in an instant. How many gals are figuring out their ovulation cycles to the split second, let alone the day? I've even heard of young ladies standing on their heads after sex to get knocked up!

    Desperate women will try just about anything to get a bun cooking in their oven. And if you fellas are having trouble doing your part, it's not time to switch up your love-making routine or try some New Age chant.

    But it may be time to change your toothpaste.

    Because a new European study has found that your home is LITTERED with chemicals that turn your sperm from a fast-swimming Mark Spitz to a lazy fat kid floating along in an inner tube.

    Scientists from Germany and Denmark just studied how 96 "endocrine disrupter" chemicals in toothpaste, makeup and sunscreen affect a man's fertility. And these chemicals I've been telling you about for years -- like phthalates, mercury, and PFCs -- are killing sperm faster than anything you'll find in the "family planning" department at CVS.

    In fact, about a third of the chemicals tested damaged your sperm's ability to swim. Forget fertilizing an egg -- your sperm are moving like a jammed-up freeway during rush hour.

  3. Shine a light on prostate cancer

    If you want to save your prostate and spare yourself a cancer death, forget all about PSA tests, drugs, surgeries, and everything else the mainstream has been throwing at this disease. Head to the beach instead.
  4. The 'A' way to slash your cancer risk

    No matter what you've heard, the sun is NOT the cause of deadly skin cancers.
  5. The 'eyes' in your skin are going blind

    It's the "cover-up" that's finally being exposed to the light: Not only will sunscreens NOT protect you from cancer, they'll actually CAUSE the very disease they're supposed to prevent!
  6. New panic over sun fears

    But today, even a hint of sunshine leads to a full-blown panic -- and now, a leading U.K. cancer charity is pushing strict new rules that would ensure no child is ever exposed to that wicked old sun.
  7. Seeing the light on skin cancer

    There's a link between sun exposure and melanoma alright, but it's not what you've been told. Sunlight doesn't cause this deadly skin cancer... but a lack of it sure will!
  8. Feds tinker with sunscreen rules

    It's been 33 years since the feds promised to set some rules for sunscreen -- and now, they're finally ready to act. Err... make that finally ready to act next year, because that's when the FDA's new rules designed to “help" consumers choose a sunscreen are supposed to kick in.
  9. Cancer organization endorses the sun

    After decades of telling people to avoid sun exposure, one of Britain's leading cancer charities is getting ready to do a major about-face.
  10. Skin cancer rates rising at record pace

    Skin cancer rates are skyrocketing at a shocking pace... and the so-called experts are STILL blaming the sun for a problem manufactured right here on earth.
