Hey, we all feel better when we go out in the warm, bright sunshine, don’t we? Have you ever been stuck inside or been in stormy weather for days when all of a sudden, BOOM, that big beautiful sun came out? And you stepped into that fresh air and felt the sunlight warm your mind, body and spirit?
Well, GUESS WHAT? It’s not just your imagination! There is a real physiological and biochemical reaction that happens in your body when the sun contacts your skin. Our bodies, our food and all of life on the planet evolved to thrive in the sunlight. But what about skin cancer, melanoma, premature aging and sunburn, you ask?
You’ll hear all your answers in this second episode with Dr. Elizabeth Plourde. When Dr. Plourde’s studies revealed that sunscreens actually promote melanoma and harm all life in the oceans, she devoted her life to presenting the truth behind today’s environmental damage in books, scientific articles, medical conferences and consumer groups. When “Kid Safe” sunscreens were marketed, Dr. Plourde redoubled her efforts to dispel the myth that zinc and titanium oxides are “kid safe.” Not only are they “not kid safe,” they are not “ocean life safe,” as they kill the phytoplankton, the foundation of our oceans’ food chain. Sunscreens are not only toxic and dangerous for people and ALL of life but they are also… totally UNNECESSARY! As you’ll learn in this episode, we can create our own internal “SPF” through dietary choices and lifestyle!
