Safe Sunscreens

Does it matter very much which brand of sunscreen I use?

Wow. Does it ever. An analysis by the Environmental Working Group of 785 suncreen products with an SPF of 15 or higher found that only 16 percent of them were made of safe ingredients and offered adequate protection from the sun’s harmful rays! Find out how your sunscreen fared by using this internet tool from EWG:

why would the sun be damaging? why hide from the sun when it is so beneficial. you need to have the proper protection from within. Your diet should consist of enough carotenoids (beta-carotene) to stop the damaging effects that the sun could cause, if you just jump out all of a sudden into the sun for long time, and not give your body a chance to manufacture a tan which protects you from the sun and then allowing your body to manufacture vitamin D. also you need enough copper in your diet to manufacture a tan, that why black people are black because they retain copper because their environment for eons was out in the tropics sun. due the research

When I was a kid growing up in Australia, our mothers used to plaster zinc cream all over us. Other than the fact that you wouldn't want to go out with this stuff all over you today, would "just zinc cream" work?
