I'm doing a lot of medical research right now, and I really need the wild caught fish or grass fed beef industry to pay for my fellowship in evolutionary medicine.
I just saw an update on CNN that said: Sugar, not just salt, linked to hypertension.
This is old news but good to see it on a mainstream news channel.
When selecting a sunscreen, IMHO, and based on my own research, select one that does NOT have retinal of any sort in it.
It's a buzz word for anti aging. However, more and more studies are coming out that any form of it should not be a day time product (should be night time only)...
And unfortunately, cosmetic companies jump on the band wagon of consumerism and add it to promote sales. I suspect in the next 10 years we will be hearing about the overabundance of skin damage done with product that reacts to UV.
And for me it's a personal preference to only use physical sun block as opposed to chemical. Which I find I react to via a rash in the sun. Something about burning chemicals into my skin that seems like a bad idea. And I don't care about FDA approval. They approve a lot of horrifying crap.
totally agree- fda approval is worthless
Dr. Gundry (at his seminar and he mentions it in his book) has also stated that cancer cells feast off of the sugar in people's bodies. He has helped people rid themselves of skin cancer based on dietary changes (eliminating grains).
Re: sunscreen: I asked him specifically about sunscreen and he pretty much stated that if you have the right amount of vitamins and minerals, your body will synthesis it's own sun protection. A large % of skin cancer appears on non-sun exposed areas thus lending more truth to the OP's statement.
SAQ: I have to be a little skeptical of this guy's claims. To start with, he observed red patches on his skin, which might have been some other problem entirely. To diagnose yourself at home with a pregnancy kit seems a little bit sketchy, as well. When the red patches went away, he assumed he was "cured"; but as he wasn't properly diagnosed initially, there's really no way to be sure of that, either.

Did you read the testimonials from the numerous other people who have been cured though? There is no cure for cancer.. that comes from the pharmaceutical companies. All I know is that no Doctor has ever been able to help me. Most of what I've been told about my health issues has been wrong. Kelley has helped me with something that nobody else could.

It gives me a certain amount of paranoia about the sun. For instance, when driving if i can feel the sun on my arm i move my arm into the shade. It's like i can feel the burning . . .

I doubt i was ever deficient in sun. I did however get very bad sunburns from time to time (boils on the skin etc) Also, my malignancy was in the area that i got my boils (shoulder / back)
