- Sunscreen is Killing People; Scientists Now Say Sunlight Deficiency is Deadly, Reversing Decades of Propaganda Pushed by the Toxic Sunscreen Industry

(Natural News) File this under “long-standing health beliefs we now know are false:” Sunscreen isn’t really that good for you after all. Like eggs and salt, the sun has been given a bad name rather unfairly. Not only is the sun not bad for you – quite the opposite, in fact – but sunscreen isn’t exactly doing your health any favors. Let’s take a look at what we now know.
After years of avoiding the sun in hopes of preventing skin cancer, doctors and researchers are now seeing just how badly a lack of sunlight can impact your health. One of the biggest problems right now is vitamin D deficiency. This hormone is manufactured by your skin upon exposure to sunlight. Although there are food sources of vitamin D, it’s very difficult to get it from diet alone.
These days, most people work indoors, and many of us wear sunscreen every time we do go outside because we’ve been told that UV rays can cause skin cancer. The advice from some experts has been to always use sunscreen and get vitamin D supplements, but clinical trials have shown that these supplements are no match for the real deal.
In fact, a study of nearly 26,000 participants found that taking high doses of vitamin D supplements over five years had essentially no impact on stroke, heart disease, or cancer. This may have added fuel to those who argue that vitamin D isn’t that important, but it overlooks the fact that getting vitamin D from a pill simply isn’t the same thing as inspiring your body to produce its own the way nature always intended.
Many experts now believe that stepping outside without sunscreen is a healthy lifestyle choice, and it deserves a place right alongside eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
