Sunscreen is toxic! Protect skin with food

Ashley Wells & Amber Dorrian (Wisdom Quarterly)

Sadly, "sunscreen" and "sunblock" has all been a scam. They do not protect us from the Sun. But they do disrupt our hormones (feminizing men and disrupting female physiology and body chemistry).

Blockers only filter one form of solar radiation, leaving us far more exposed to other forms. They encourage longer exposure, even beyond claims on bottles. "SPF" was long ago understood to mean little to nothing (certainly SPF 100 is not 100 percent protection).

But nanoparticles (like titanium dioxide and "natural" sounding minerals) and "New FDA research data reveal that a type of Vitamin A (found on the label as "retinyl palmitate" or "retinol"), which is in 41% of sunscreens, may actually increase the growth of cancerous skin tumors and lesions."

Loss of Vitamin D is also a serious consequence of the "solarphobia" used to promote sales and use (consumer consumption) of these toxic products. The skin can absorb chemicals better than the lining of the gut. So as hard as it is to believe, here is a general rule to live by: "If it's not safe to eat, it's not safe to apply to skin." The same goes for the scalp, which is skin that we often overload with super toxic chemical agents hidden in hair products.

Here's another counterintuitive message: The Sun is good. The Sun alone does not cause sunburn. Sunburn is the result of acidic body chemistry exposed to sunlight. An alkalizing diet and avoiding excessive exposure is the solution even as we lose our protective ozone layer due to environmental degradation thanks to the petrochemical industry, which also sells the major ingredients to sunscreen makers.

Fighting Skin Cancer With Food
(CBS 4, Miami, June 22, 2011)
Preventing skin cancer is vitally important especially for those who live in sunny South Florida. We already know skin cancer and premature skin aging from the Sun are preventable with[out toxic] sunscreen but…

There are non-toxic alternatives -- virgin olive oil, organic cocoa butter, avocado, aloe vera, king coconut water -- consumed along with other alkalizing foods. Spreading on skin before exposure is also soothing.

What do you recommend for redheads? I am practically a raw foodist (uber healthy), and I just cannot get away without using sunscreen, as well as, covering up with clothing, hats, etc. I use Devita suscreen from Whole Foods.
