This Might Just Be the Worst Piece of Advice You Could Hear in Your Life

I was reading an article in the latest edition of Nexus magazine about sunscreens and cancer, from a lady who wrote a book called Sunscreens - Bio-hazard and I would have to say, take my advice and don't take this guy's advice in the above You Tube on the sunscreen.
His other advice is not bad though, but do your homework...and don't trust him on the sunscreen.
Although, if you do find the 'scientific' advice on the sunscreen in the sunscreen song compelling, you might find this piece of medical advice from the late forties worth following as well?- ) 
"Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. 

Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.
But trust me on the sunscreen…"             
Lyrics from The Sunscreen Song

Update: March 25th, 2012
There is a radio interview at this link;
about the dangers of sunscreens...along with a few other topics, which might, or might not be interesting to readers of this post...with the editor of Nexus magazine, Duncan Roads.

What an odd labyrinth! I remember those old Flintstone cartoons!

Not sure what to say. I've had to have several basal cell carcinomas cut from my shoulders. The cause, I'm told, by the dermatologists is that I had too much sunshine when younger. I admit to have being a bit of a sun worshipper back then. They say, if I had used the right sunscreen ....

The main argument here,is not that the sunscreens give you the cancer,it is still the radiation from the sun.
But the way sunscreens work is by blocking out UVA and UVB rays only,letting other deadlier rays penetrate deeper into the skin without giving you the tell tale sunburn to go with it.
In other words you stay out in the sun longer falsely thinking that you are protected,because big pharma tells you that you are safe...and you are not.
You would be better off covering up with a hat and shirt than relying on sunscreens to give you 'overall' protection.
In other words "the Emperor wears no sunprotection...or not enough to save him years later down the track".
We need sun exposure to make vitamin D,so some sun is good for you in moderation.
But like wine,a glass a day maybe good,but a flagon a day will kill you...unfortunately.-)

Not really.
Big Pharma is telling you sunscreens will protect you from the sun,but in the long run if you spent a lot of time in the sun,you will find out they didn't.
And Big Tobacco used to tell you smoking was good for you and helped you relax,but in the long run it killed you...try relaxing when you have emphysema.

Thanks, I'll be doing some research.
