Very high cure rate when caught early so he should be OK.

About 1/3 of Caucasians develop basal cell carcinoma (BCC) in their lifetime, so keep an eye out folks.

This is why me and the Sun are not on speaking terms.    I'm pale, because of my condition, so me and the sun don't get along at all.

I'm a blue eyed, blonde haired, light complexioned Scandinavian (90%+) who fries like an egg without gobs of sunblock. Our daughter is worse - platinum blonde and even lighter complexioned.

Except that a lot of sunscreens can cause other forms of cancer.

ugh, that paraben BS again.

 

 

even IF parabens caused a slightly increase in cancer risk if you mix enough products with parabens(remember for the cocktail effect to actually kick in you need such a ridiculous amount, you'd be bathing in it, and parabens is a catch all phrase for a lot of stuff, and only some of them are suspected, and not proven at all, and even then in far higher doses then what you get in any products), anyway, back to my point, even if they do cause a higher risk. what would you chose, 66.6% chance of skin cancer(a lot higher if you're in the sun without sun protection, that's just the average), or the sub 1 percentage chance if maybe getting something from a sun screen ?

As I mentioned, nine of the 15 chemical sunscreens are considered endocrine disruptors. Those are chemicals that interfere with the normal function of hormones. The hormones most commonly disturbed are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid.Endocrine disruptors, like some ingredients in chemical sunscreens, can cause abnormal development of fetuses and growing children. They cause early puberty and premature breast development in girls, and small and undescended testicles in boys. They cause low sperm counts and infertility. Endocrine disruptors that act like estrogen can contribute to the development of breast and ovarian cancers in women, and other endocrine disruptors may increase the chance of prostate cancer in men.

Sunscreens do not offer blanket protection from the sun and do little to prevent the most deadly form of skin cancer; reliance on them instead of, say, a hat and protective clothing, might be contributing to skin cancer; and the Food and Drug Administration has yet to issue any safety standards, mysteriously sitting on a set of recommendations drafted 30 years ago.

True you don't totally RELY on them, but for people like US who southern fry without them - it's better than walking around smothered in zinc oxide looking like Michael Jackson on Halloween.
