The "Silent" Red Hair Gene that Kills More than Redheads.

Posted by Kevin Knight on 7/14/2016 to News
People can carry a "silent" red hair gene that raises their risk of sun-related skin cancer, experts warn. The gene' s effect is comparable to two decades of sun exposure in terms of cancerous changes. While people with two copies of the gene will have ginger hair, freckles and pale skin and probably know to take extra care in the sun, those with one copy may not realize they are at risk. Many USA adults and children have one version of the gene called MC1R which increases their risk of malignant melanoma. These carriers may not always look like "easy burners", say the researchers - but they are.

Posted by Kevin Alan on 1/30/2016 to News

The FDA, which regulates drugs and medical devices, announced updated rules that will govern sun screens sold in the U.S. The rules will not go into effect until the summer of 2012, but the proposal does offer interesting insight to Sunscreens and their true sun protective qualities.The new rules will require sunscreens to:

C. A sunscreen cannot claim to provide sun protection for more than 2 hours without reapplication or to provide protection immediately after application (for example- "instant protection") without submitting data to support these claims and obtaining FDA approval.

D. A sunscreen with an SPF of less than 15 will be required to have warnings and cannot make a skin cancer prevention claim. These sunscreens can only make a sunburn claim.E.
