What's in your sunscreen

School is out for Summer! At least for the Rogers family, which means more fun in the sun... or kids hiding in their caves trying to avoid it. It's that time of year when many of us will begin slathering on that sunscreen to protect our skin and kiddo’s from resembling a lobster. But what if we're just trading one awful thing for another?

“Experts” tell us to slather it on, meanwhile watching the reports, skin cancer rates have shot up in the past 30 years! How can that be if we’re getting better at being “prepared”? Many commercial sunscreens have hidden carcinogens in them, making them toxic.

Scientists petitioned the FDA to remove sunscreens that contain the active ingredient octocrylene for its ability to absorb UV rays, protecting the skin from sun damage.
