Is Your Sun Screen Killing You?

No More Toxic Sun Screen!
I have been studying the hazardous effects from toxic ingredients in many very well known sunscreens! 
Studies have found that the incidence of skin cancers has increased even as sunscreens have become popular, especially in fair skinned people.

I have found zinc oxide to be one of the best natural sun blocks
Sunscreen Chemicals Generate Free Radicals
Most sunscreens contain ethylhexyl salicylate, homosalate, avobenzone, octyl methoxycinnamate, and Oxybenzone-Benzophenone, a powerful free radical generator that is activated by ultraviolet light! Free radicals damage the DNA of cells which produce skin aging and the development of cancer.
Chemical Sunscreens Increase Risk of Cancer/ Estrogenic
An observation between 1981-1992 estimated a 17% increase in breast cancer as a result of the influential use of sunscreens over the past decade. Using chemical sunscreens may increase your chances of developing endometriosis, breast cancer, and uterine cancer A clinical study showed the effect of sunscreen s on UV radiation-induced enhancement of melanoma growth in mice.(Journal of National Cancer Institute, Vol.86, No.10.
