Thank you for telling the FDA you want safe sunscreens and labeling of nano materials.

Thanks Nancy.. Signed and noted. This is a very important issue.. Here in Australia, where people slather on kilos of sunscreen, they nearly ALL contain Titanuim Dioxide.. Even the ones that claim they are safe!! The very few sunscreens that DON'T contain it are very expensive, so I checked on the back of some of the sunscreens for babies and young childre, as they were cheaper and I felt sure they would NOT contain those toxic substances... WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not sure if we really need different kind of sun screens at all. It is just mostly money making anyway. Companies will just ask for more money, give it a different name, and the sun screen will be just the same.

I don't trust sunscreen. I carry a golf umbrella, huge~~~~~~

and I eat almonds every day to prevent cancer. Doctor verified that it does and even
heals cancer.

Sunscreen shouldn't be like chemo. The cure being nearly as deadly as the thing it's supposed to combat.

Luckily for us most people don't use it.

N/S gladly Nancy. And just think after slathering on the body, a person decides to go swimming in the ocean - it gets washed off and effects our precious oceans.
