Only part of the UV spectrum is non-ionizing. The ionizing part causes cancer, and most of the damage being talked about here.

#3 Don't start with the proof thing again, for Gods sake. :D

I am currently conducting a Snotr first. You may be aware of the 'Show me the intermediate fossil' video about five video's previous to this one...Well it's currently sitting at 95 comments which I believe is already a record for Snotr BUT I have been told by a semi-reliable source that when it gets to 100 something amazing happens to the Snotr site, so come on guys make a few comments and lets see what happens. You Might even be number 100 what a privileged. :D

Very True . Over Two 3rds of people who lives in countries with extreme levels of UV light like Australia and New Zealand will develop a skin cancer by the time they are 60.
Melanoma skin cancers are like a ticking time bomb that is very difficult to treat and cause death

Take home points:

1. Do not use harsh body cleaning chemicals (read: protective cell and oil strippers)
2. Sunbathe before bathing
3. Do not use “sunscreen”
4. Avoid prolonged or frequent sun exposure until adaptive melanogenesis via UV-B exposure has occurred

In other words, do as humanity has done for eons? Extra credit:

#7 so what's next? radiation of the earth's core? jupiters effect on PMS? low tide and potency?

what a load of bullshit ..i don't use sunscreen.... my kids don't use sunscreen ... my parents and grand parents didn't use it .. but we also don't lay on the beach for 6 hours from 11-17
we respect the enemy .. and also enjoy it ..

it's just like anything else .. salt.fat.. sugars..lsd.. hops... we became what we are by spontaneously using and being influenced by different substances and exposures..

people suffer in those sun studios and on the beach to get a tan... and look like their TV role models.. and in the same time use sun screen to reverse the process

i find it incredibly funny

#8 Yes, but Derek Muller said it, and that pretty much makes it true! <3

i mean, it is true. of course. I don't doubt the effects of sun, but there is a solution for most of us other than sunscreen , we don't know what we are buying ..of course it's good to protect your self from a long midday exposure to sun, but you can avoid exposure.. use clothes like people did for centuries. you know :)

saying sunscreen is good is (almost :)) like saying food is good. sunscreen isn't a chemical element.. it's a product of different mixtures made by companies to make profit.
nobody tested all of the sunscreen formulas available today on long term affects, allergies and even cancer
scientist say the data on sunscreen use and cancer risk are complex and suggest that the short-term and long-terms benefits of sunscreens significantly outweigh their risks when used during periods of unavoidable exposure.
outweigh! they don't deny it.

Also , it is not cheap.. and people tend to buy ones advertised or the cheap ones, there is also expiration date and so on and so on.

it is a very very complex issue.. and to say after looking through the UV camera for an hour "Use sunscreen" is just plain dumb!

unless of course you are a truck driver , then you should use sunscreen.
what is a truck driver without the hand outside the window?

#8 No, I absolutely agree with you, ComentAtor. We have to make common sense decisions about all those products that obviously are sold by companies to make a profit, not because they care about us.

There is no doubt about that. Even though we should use sunscreen, it is wise to think about all the factors involved in using it and make an intelligent decision.

Exactly, clothes can also be a sunscreen or sit under partial shade, there are many ways to avoid UV, without having to always reach for the sunscreen.

And I'm not sure if you've heard that we, especially in Northern latitudes, have a problem with a lack of vitamin D, and there are sources that are looking into overuse of sunscreen, because of course you know we need UV to convert provitamin D into vitamin D. and lack of vitamin D can have a whole host of other problems, so it's like everything else, moderation is the key there too.

#11 just a few weeks ago .. i couldn't sleep there was a documentary on TV about living in Northern Norway i think .. you know, a few months without sunlight
and one of the stories was a man who was very sensitive to this .. and has trouble working and keeping awake so he bought a special lamp to give him artificial UV to help him through the day.

this image of him follows me for the last few weeks.. i mean why doesn't he move? why doesn't he go on a first jet to spain? poor guy

UPDATE: (i) i found it! Dear thunders i recommend it it's called LES VILLES DE L'EXTREME and the city is Hammerfest

and here is the man with the lamp ! :D
