No safe way to suntan, new NICE guidance warns - BBC News
There is no safe or healthy way to get a tan from sunlight, new guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has warned. The health watchdog's latest guidance also says an existing tan provides little protection against sun exposure. It recommends using at least factor 15 sun cream, with adults urged to use 6-8 teaspoons (35ml) per application. Benefits from building up vitamin D from the sun have to be balanced with the risks of skin cancer, it adds. Many adults in Britain have low levels of vitamin D and the guidance states that some exposure to sunlight can help to build this up. NICE also says it is not possible to get enough vitamin D by sitting next to a closed sunny window, or from sunlight between October and March in the UK. However, experts stopped short of recommending a specific amount of time people should stay out. //&! Hugh Jackman - bit.ly/1Q6wQvP

Präventionsgesetz: Mehr Geld für die Gesundheitsvorsorge - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kita, Schule, Betrieb: Überall soll die Gesundheitsvorsorge eine größere Rolle spielen. Zwei vom Bundesrat verabschiedete Gesetze sollen zudem die Impfbereitschaft verbessern und schnellere Facharzttermine garantieren. [...] Die Kassen hatten zuvor kritisiert, dass rund 35 Millionen Euro zur Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung (BZgA) fließen sollen. Das sei Quersubventionierung einer Bundesbehörde durch Versichertengelder, sagte der Vorstand des GKV-Spitzenverbands, Gernot Kiefer. Betriebe sollen zudem mehr für die Gesundheit ihrer Mitarbeiter tun - etwa in Form von gesundem Kantinenessen, heißt es auf der Seite des Bundesgesundheitsministeriums. [...] Auch Selbsthilfegruppen werden durch das Gesetz gestärkt.

Bräune und Krebsgefahr: Im Solarium altert die Haut schneller - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Breitbart: Je früher ein Mensch im Laufe seines Lebens Sonnenbrände bekommt, desto größer wird sein Risiko, nach einer langen Latenzphase an Hautkrebs zu erkranken. Aber: Bei dem einen kann diese Phase 20 Jahre dauern, bei dem anderen 50. Auch die Zahl drei ist recht willkürlich. Das ist sehr individuell. Bei dem einen reicht schon ein einziger schwerer Sonnenbrand. Bei dem anderen braucht es 30. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Ich bin also Risikopatient? Breitbart: Ja. Sie sollten alle zwei Jahre zum Screening gehen. Dieser erste Sonnenbrand legt einen Schalter um, der nicht mehr umkehrbar ist. Ihre Haut beginnt dann, Pigmentmale zu bilden. Diese sind gutartig und nehmen im Lauf des Lebens an Zahl immer mehr zu. Mit jedem neuen Pigmentmal steigt Ihr Risiko auf die Entstehung des schwarzen Hautkrebses, dem malignen Melanom. Wenn man den schwarzen Hautkrebs früh erkennt, kann man ihn sehr gut behandeln.

BBC News - 'Half of UK people' will get cancer
One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, analysis suggests. Cancer Research UK said this estimate, using a new calculation method, replaced a forecast of more than one in three people developing the disease. It said longer life expectancies meant more people would be affected. But it was not inevitable and improving lifestyle, such as losing weight and quitting smoking, could have a major impact, the charity added. The good news is cancer survival figures are also rising. &! Cancer diagnosis rate of 1,000 per day to 'push NHS to limit' The NHS will be "pushed to its limit" by the end of 2016 by rising numbers of cancer patients, a charity says.

Grüne Kosmetik: Naturkosmetik Inhaltsstoffe wichtige Fragen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wie ist die Wirkung? Gerade wenn es um Anti-Aging geht, hegen Verbraucher oft Zweifel, ob die konventionelle Kosmetik mit ihren hochpreisigen Hightech-Produkten nicht doch die besseren Faltenkiller zu bieten hat. Werner Voss winkt ab. In seinem Labor in Münster untersucht der Dermatologe jedes Jahr an die 3000 Produkte. Sein Fazit: "Der Alterungsprozess lässt sich mit keinem Mittelchen, das man von außen auf die Haut aufträgt, aufhalten." Wie knitterig jemand aussieht, hängt zu 90 Prozent von seinen Genen ab, zu 10 Prozent von der Ernährung, davon, ob man raucht, Alkohol trinkt, sich in die Sonne knallt. Es ist eigentlich nur möglich, der Haut Feuchtigkeit zuzuführen, dann sieht sie praller aus. Doch das kann laut Voss jedes solide Gemisch aus Fett und Wasser - die Grundlage einer jeden Creme. Es scheint also egal zu sein, ob man zur herkömmlichen Creme mit Silikonöl als Fettkomponente greift oder der natürlichen mit Pflanzenöl.

BBC News - Skin cancer trial results 'exciting'
The results of two international trials against advanced skin cancer have been hailed as "exciting and striking". Both treatments, for advanced melanoma, are designed to enable the immune system to recognise and target tumours. The findings were released at the American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago. The experimental drugs, pembrolizumab and nivolumab, block the biological pathway cancers use to disguise themselves from the immune system. Advanced melanoma - skin cancer which has spread to other organs - has proved very hard to treat. Until a few years ago average survival was around six months.

Beauty is NOT skin deep: New research shows that even the most expensive cosmetic creams cannot penetrate the skin to repair from within | Mail Online
++ Society & Culture of pure Vanity (& whole industries feed them, in a self fulfilling cycle of glossy magazines, celebrity culture, etc) long-term chemical exposure consequences yet unknown. ++

Cosmetic skin creams cannot ‘penetrate’ the skin as claimed by many manufacturers, a study found today.

Many pharmaceutical brands claim that nanoparticles in their products give their creams a ‘deep penetrating action’.
But scientists at the University of Bath found that such claims are 'patently' untrue and that even the tiniest of nanoparticles do not penetrate the skin’s surface.

Beauty creams that claim to penetrate the skin have been hailed as miracle workers for women of a certain age
Their work suggests that creams are simply deposited into creases in the skin and do not carry nutrients deep under the surface.

'The skin’s role is to act as a barrier to potentially dangerous chemicals and to reduce water loss from the body. Our study shows that it is doing a good job of this.

Shocking photo that reveals the damage the sun does to your face | Mail Online
Unlike the UVB rays most commonly associated with skin cancer and sunburn, UVA rays can penetrate glass such as the trucker's window and are present even on cloudy days.
Although UVA light was previously believed to be relatively safe compared to UVB - resulting in ranges of sunscreens that blocked only UVB - recent research and the university study have shown that skin cancer can be caused by both types.

Formaldehyde in Wrinkle-Free Clothes May Pose Skin Risks - NYTimes.com
it can have serious health implications for people who work with the chemical in factories. The biggest potential issue for those wearing wrinkle-resistant clothing can be a skin condition called contact dermatitis. It affects a small group of people and can cause itchy skin, rashes and blisters, according to a recent government study on formaldehyde in textiles. Still, some critics said more studies on a wider array of textiles and clothing chemicals were needed, including a closer look at the effects of cumulative exposure. At the very least, they said, better labeling would help.
“From a consumer perspective, you are very much in the dark in terms of what clothing is treated with,” said David Andrews, a senior scientist at the Environmental Working Group, a research and advocacy organization. “In many ways, you’re in the hands of the industry and those who are manufacturing our clothing. And we are trusting them to ensure they are using the safest materials and additives.”
