You’ve probably already heard that chemical filled sunscreens are harming coral reef systems around the world. In fact 4,000 – 6,000 tons of sunscreen is washed in to the oceans every year! and this figure is growing. The National Geographic research program 2008 shows that 10% of the worlds coral reef systems are being killed of by sunscreen-induced bleaching. Again this figure is growing, which also means that sea creatures that live and feed on and around the reefs are also threatened. All this because we choose to wear horrible armful chemicals on our skin.

Research also shows that nearly every American citizen has been contaminated with the popular sunscreen chemical; Oxybenzone which has been linked to allergies, hormone disruption and cell damage. This same nasty chemical  is also linked to low birth weight in baby girls who’s mother have been exposed during pregnancy. 

If that isn’t enough to put you off using such sunscreens then what if I tell you that these sunscreens that disrupt the endocrine system can play a significant role in the development of breast cancer too.
