A colleague of mine received a press release (pitch) this past week making her aware of the dangers of sunscreen. Dangers of sunscreen are nothing new, people have been bitching about the chemicals of sunscreen for years and in their second breath they bitch about the effects of the sun.
But this one? This one takes the cake!
These chemicals are also known as “gender-bending” chemicals. The chemicals act like the female hormone estrogen and can be associated with serious medical problems like smaller penises in boys, loss of libido or breast development in men, early puberty in girls and uterine fibroid tumors.
Are you kidding me?
Uterine tumors? Breast devlopment?Where was sunscreen when I was in middle school and a charter member of the itty-bitty-titty-committee? Hell where is it now, I think I am going to run out and buy a couple of cases and rub them all over my chest!
Seriously people, calm the hell down. EVERYTHING has something bad in it, otherwise it wouldn’t work!
