Lately, scientists in the sunscreen industry have been in the metaphorical hot seat. Sunscreen use is at an all time high (good) but so are skin cancer rates (bad). ‘Sunscreen causes cancer’ would’ve made a much more sensational title for this post but it’s actually misuse of sunscreen that’s adding to cancer’s success. People have a false sense of protection with sunscreens. Instead we should be getting smaller doses of sun and covering up more.
