Zonnebrandcreme, en niet de zon zelf de aanjager van huidkanker?

Afgelopen week hadden we weer een informatie avond over gezonde voeding en ik babbelde nog wat na met Mike Donkers over de zomerperiode en mijn vermoeden dat niet de zon zelf de aanjager is van huidkanker maar al die chemische rommel die we op de huid smeren als we de zon ingaan. De huid is namelijk ons grootste orgaan en kan gemakkelijk alle rommel opslurpen die we erop smeren. Zou u die chemische cocktail normaal zo naar binnen gieten? Maar u doet het indirect wel via de huid !

En bijna 1 week later dit bericht op een Amerikaanse site:

Sunscreen Causes Cancer!

The skin is not the only organ that is harmed by sunscreen chemicals. Those chemicals are absorbed by the skin, circulate throughout the body and end up harming the liver, the organ responsible for neutralizing chemicals in the body. The continued use of sunscreen products -- especially those with fragrance in them -- will inevitably harm the liver and, in my opinion, can lead to organ failure or liver cancer.



Sunscreens and Cancer

by Hans R. Larsen, MSc ChE

In 1991 Professor Johan Moan of the Norwegian Cancer Institute made an astounding discovery. He found that the yearly incidence of melanoma in Norway had increased by 350% for men and by 440% for women during the period 1957 to 1984. He also determined that there had been no change in the ozone layer over this period of time. He concludes his report in the British Journal of Cancer by stating "Ozone depletion is not the cause of the increase in skin cancers".



Sunscreen Causes Cancer

A large-scale analysis by a private organization, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that about 84% of the sunscreens they tested with an SPF (sun protection factor, or solar protection factor) over 15 in rating contained ingredients that raised significant health concerns for applicants of the sunscreen.



Sunscreens 'may be toxic'

A chemical used in most sunscreens to protect against skin cancer could damage human cells, according to a study. Research carried out in Norway found that octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC), which is used in 90% of sun creams to protect against ultra violet rays, could be harmful if it seeps into a person's blood stream.



Aluminum Found In Sunscreen: Could It Cause Skin Cancer?

Scientists at Keele University in Staffordshire have questioned the safety of aluminium added to sunscreens and sunblocks.



Sunscreen chemicals disrupt thyroid in rats

Chemicals found in many sunscreens can disrupt the production of thyroid hormone in rats, researchers report. Their study raises concerns that chemicals that absorb ultraviolet light could damage the thyroid in people. The thyroid gland is located in the neck and secretes hormones that affect growth and metabolism.
