Your Skin and the Sun
Time to protect your skin and prevent skin cancer through the foods you eat.
Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers in the United States. If your younger than age sixty and diagnosed with skin cancer, your risk for multiple systemic cancers is significantly increased. Therefore, healthy skin equals healthy immune system which equals decreased risk for not only skin cancer, but also for systemic cancers like breast cancer, prostate cancer, non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, and Leukemia.
Not only do you want to use a good sunscreen but you want to eat foods that significantly lower your risk for cancer. (These can be found in my Superhealth Book) Be sure to reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours. Pay careful attention to your nose, lips, ears, chest and face. These are the places where the most dangerous skin cancers are likely to form. You should avoid the sun between 10am and 3pm. What my wife and I do everyday is we have about 4ozs of carrot juice in the morning and 4ozs of RW Knudsen Very Veggie Vegetable Cocktail in the evening before dinner. This will offer some protection from the sun. Within 4-6 weeks you will also notice your skin will have a natural tan.
Have a happy, healthy summer!
