Reading the news on MSN the other day. The chemical industry now recommends everyone put sun block on their skin first thing in the morning. Why – apparently because office workers could be exposed to sunlight coming through their windows at work, or, when they walk from their homes to the car ! This is PREPOSTEROUS propaganda !! They say they are protecting us from skin cancer. What ??
The chemical / medical industries are promoting the slathering of a known carcinogen (SPF sun block) all over our bodies to supposedly PROTECT us ! Then years later, the scores of diseases that are caused by blocking UVB (Vitamin D) will justify the gross over use of pharmaceuticals through Medicare. Then the chemical / medical corporatacracy blatantly prescribes pharmaceuticals to address the very organs, glands, vascular system, and frail bones that are shutting down and causing most of the so called “western diseases”due simply to a lack of sun light !! Most of the so called western diseases are dramatically correlated to vitamin D deficiency. And the western diseases have been growing exponentially the past 40 years (not coincidentally) as we now mostly work indoors. It is almost too crazy to believe, but the AMA – Big Pharma (both synonymous with the FDA) promote this obnoxious FRAUD, because it is profitable for them to do so.
Our natural source of Vitamin D is sunshine. The whole issue of skin cancer is so outrageously exaggerated by Dermatologists and AMA, it is frightening they have gotten away with it for so long. The fact is blocking sun light promotes more skin cancer (and practically ALL cancers) and denying this simple fact is is how they sustain their business. They suggest humans and practically everything that lives evolved in a cave. This is absurd. And they suggest we block our natural source of Vitamin D (life), with a chemical sun block and by avoiding the sun in the middle of the day is more than just a little concerning.
Sunlight and tanning beds distribute HEALTHY UVB daily and and the subsequent increases to the Vitamin D levels in our blood prevents scores of diseases. In fact most skin cancer is not even caused by UVB. It is caused by UVA which is very different from UVB. See my post (UVA-UVB-UVC) which describes these differences. This fraudulent propaganda is primarily promoted by the very same people who profit from our being vitamin D deficient.
It’s nonsense to even mention UV and sunburn without distinguishing between UVA and UVB. The miss-information must stop along with the absolute over use of sun block and the preposterous restrictions on sun beds. There is one reason for the propaganda against natural Vitamin D from light. Greed. The truth will prevail.
Of course we don’t lay out in the sun with lily white skin for 3-4 hours in the middle of July with no prior sunlight exposure. Obviously 2nd degree burns on the skin year after year are dangerous. That simple fact has been known for ages. Nevertheless, these past 20 years of propaganda by the sun scare industries has NOT protected us. In fact the destruction to our over all health by the sun scare industries has merely been about their own profit mongering. Ignoring objective peer reviewed science that contradicts their supposition that the sun is poison to life is becoming more absurd year after year. Even on its face the statement that blocking sun light is somehow good for us – seems patently absurd. Notwithstanding the vast evidence and science against them, the cancer-pharmaceutical-cosmetic-dermatologist-AMA corporatacracy is finding the facts more difficult to overcome with each passing year. As a result of their propaganda the incidence of skin cancer and all cancers, diabetes, heart disease, bone disease, etc. through out the USA has only grown – and particularly so for office workers who slather SPF on everyday. The simple fact is our long term development of many previously rare diseases is now connected to our unusually low levels of Vitamin D (sunshine). So diseases caused by vitamin D deficiency (lack of sunlight) are on a dramatic rise through out the Western countries. This while a few people are profiting very much with the deception and now the denial.
The fact is out door workers who have consistent and incremental exposure to sun light through out the year not only have less skin cancer than office workers, but also a lower incidence of scores of other diseases. If the sun is so bad you would expect to see outdoor workers dying from skin cancer in massive numbers, they are not. That is a fact ignored by the sun scare industry. Another fact is the closer you live to the equator the lower the incidence of 17 major cancers. Sunshine and water are the basis of evolution on this planet – to suggest the sun is poison to be avoided at all costs is very much like saying avoid water at all costs because you could drown in it.
Similarly, all the corral reefs around the planet near sun bathing beaches are crumbling into the sand the past few decades. Marine biologist have determined this destruction is primarily due to Vitamin D deficiency from the SPF that washes off the skin of sun bathers. This chemical, like an oil, lays a film of sun block across the surface where corral reefs must live (near the surface). Corral reefs and plant life, like all animals require UVB (sunlight), they are otherwise perpetually sick. SPF and sun block lotions are the poison – NOT the sunshine. Someone decided it would be good marketing idea – in the mass media – to turn those basic facts on their head. Thus promoting pharmaceuticals that you will need by being Vitamin D deficient. The cancer societies and dermatologist are intent in promoting their business by misinformation, propaganda, and ignoring unbiased health science. Next they will be telling us that all plants, animals, and insects should be sprayed with SPF to protect them from the poisonous sun. Oh wait – I guess they are already doing something very much like that – with pesticides and herbicides.
SPF and the toxic chemicals that Industrial Ag and Big pharma are supposed to be at best neutral towards us, but the facts are practically everything these chemicals touch dies sooner rather than later. Our food and bodies micro-nutrients and essential pro-biotic bacteria do not have a chance. Some insects, with a life span of a few months, evolve a progeny over a few years that are highly resistant. So what do the chemical companies do ? They make the chemicals more toxic !! And then claim it is still safe for human consumption. What the hell ??
The intelligent exposure of solar light (including sun beds) brings the pigment naturally to the surface of the skin which is by far the healthiest use of light, and it promotes optimum levels of Vitamin D in your blood stream, bones, and organs. It also makes you feel and look healthy !! Plus it provides a natural SPF. Just a small amount of pigment brought to your skin slowly over a few days is equivalent to wearing a chemical SPF except natural pigment only blocks a fraction of the beneficial UVB while it protects your deeper epidermis – unlike SPF lotions. Plus optimum Vitamin D lowers the incidence of not only 17 cancers, it lowers heart disease, osteoporosis and a host of other health problems. It lowers breast and prostrate cancer by 80% !!!! Do not believe the sun scare proponents – who have profits to make for their Corporate chemical medical – pharma – industrial agriculture complex. Identical to the fossil fuel industry – they have BOTH systematically promoted miss-information about climate change, and the health sciences. Industrial Ag, Big Pharma, and the SPF chemical companies that support them are layered in self serving deceptive nonsense. They are supported by a mongrel, corporate democracy and government run by revolving door private and government CEO’s .
Enjoy sunshine sensibly – stop slathering your body with chemicals – eat nutrient rich organic foods. Drink plenty of water – just because you can drown in it doesn’t mean you should avoid it. Do avoid chemical/pharmaceutical solutions sponsored by the print and television media that say LIGHT is poison – while they go about are feeding you poison pills because you followed their advise in the first place. Peace and Truth will prevail.
