Why risk it? Seems a completely fuckwitted thing to want to do when you can take a softgel without risk.

But it's your life - if you want to kill yourself, who am I to try to stop you...?
yeah...cancer is all about distance...

oh the drama

as someone else from Australia, I confirm what amberlee says, something to do with UVA rays vs UVB rays, Maybe google Cancer Council Australia, because there were pretty hard core advertisements down here about it. I am sure the science is a lot more precise that flipping distance, but u shoud check it out further if you are concerned.
