There was an article in The Arizona Republic newspaper that the use of sunscreens reduces your body's ability to produce vitamin D. Recent studies show vitamin D helps fight off most cancers.Sorry I don't know how to put a link to the article here but maybe one of you can. To find it go towww.azcentral.comand put vitamin d in the search wondow and it will take you to the article.

I've heard that same thing from CNN and WBZ radio news.I don't think that the experts are all that sure just what they are talking about,since they flip flop on so many issues.

It's good for a body to get a little sun so that you make vitimin D.  Too much sun and you get skin cancer.  Too much sun too quick and you get burnt.  Sun block helps to prevent burning.  What they are saying is people who spend all their time indoors should get a little sun.  That while ghost look is only popular in dracular movies.  The ghosts should come out and play in the sun.  On the other hand people should take in sun slowly.  Getting any sort of burn is not good for you.  Suntan lotion regulates the rate of exposure. 

If you allmost never get in the sun, and then wear SPF 45 when you do, you my not get enough sun for regular vitiman D production.  The problem is that if liliy white person were to go out in the mid day sun with no block they would burn.  What they need is more time in the sun with an approprate block that allows gradual absorbtion of the sun.  It's like excersise.    You have to do some every week, over a year.  If you do it all at once it will kill you.  Same with the sun,  people need more time with less intencity.  If you try to get a years worth of exposure packed into a weeks vacation the results will just be a burn.

So do use a sun screen.  Don't get burned.   Just get a 'little' color as often as you can. 

If you are in Maine and the sun comes out for an hour at 6pm, you probaby dont need sun screen.  If you are from Maine and you hit the beach in Florida at 9am you NEED sun screen.

OK, here's un update on the topic for us sun-loving beach "bums" that discusses the relationship between sun exposure and overall mortality rates:

I would say B.S. I was once on a lake and used a lot of sunscreen and just got some redness. A friend did not use any and got a disabling sunburn! Which is worse for the cancer risk?

Two things to keep in mind. First you must maintain a layer of sunscreen for it to work. Read the label, it will say how often and when to reapply. (Example apply every 2 hours or immediately after getting wet. Second, the success of the applications will depend on how evenly the sun screen is applied. Put on thickly, it will provide more protection from the Ultra Violet light you want to minimize. Think of a window screen. It blocks some of the light. Add a second screen over it and more light is blocked. If you have enough screens stacked together very little light will get through. Another person can probably do a better job than a person can themselves, and this can also be more fun. Remember doubling the SPF number will cut the sun exposure in half (assuming proper application). Using a product with half the SPF number will cause the amount of sun exposure to double. Many scientists and dermatologists feel that numbers above something in the 30 to 50 range are insignificant for most people with no medical conditions since the differences are only one or two percent. If you are happy being out in the sun for 2 hours and use SPF 15, and want to be out 4 hours instead, increase the SPF to 30. Likewise if you can only spend one hour outside, you should be able to drop the SPF from 15 to 7.5 (or about 8). Skin tone, darkness of tan, hereditary ability to tan easily or burn easily, medications (and some illegal drugs), UV index at the times you are out, etc. also effect how a sunscreen will work. All these variable intertwine, so you probably would need a huge formula and a lot of weather and physiology knowledge to get an absolute number any given day. The short answer is play it safe by using a higher number and if everything goes well, cut back a bit, keeping the time you will be out. You can use a lower SPF if you will only be out a short time, but should use a higher one if you plan to spend a longer time.

Probably need to follow the Mediterraneans - stay out of the midday sun and have a long lunch. We had some nice days a few weeks ago and I decided not to use any sunscreen whilst out in my back yard. I did overdo it and got some redness, but the next time I managed better, so I will probably keep going without sunscreen where possible. With the little sunshine we have in UK recently I figure it worth a risk. I try to keep my head and neck covered where possible. Will be off to Italy soon and will definitely wear sunscreen then. We find that starting with SPF30 and reducing to SPF15 works for us with the particular cream we use - it is fairly waterproof so we don't tend to reapply much. I guess it is trial and error to find a product that works for each of us. Having said that I am wary of applying these chemicals and wonder if I can manage better by the long lunch and keeping more in the shade. Think there was some research that said people who get sun exposure may be more likely to get skin cancer, but generally have better health and may live longer. You pays your money and takes your choice.

I live in the tropics with 320 days of sunshine a year, am at the beach every afternoon in just a g-string, and never use sunscreens. I am tanned all over (except for a nice white T on my backside, which my doctor , a lady, always admires). Often on weekends I see people coming to the beach fully dressed, strip off (why can't they come in their swimmers I don't know) and cover their milky white bodies with oodles of sunscreen. They are the ones who will get skin cancer.

I'm starting to get the thin skin that my mom, 87, has. I've noticed this last year that a small nick on the back of my hands will bring on some blood. This may be due to genetics but the dermatologist said that it's also signs of sun damage. I've had a few sunburns as a kid and from what I've read that is more likely to bring on skin cancer. I swim year round so I always have a little bit of a tan but I'm never in the pool for more than 50 minutes, 2-3 times a week. I can't remember the last time I got a sunburn. I'm starting to use a lotion with Retinol which should help with the aging sun damaged skin.
