Sun Exposure: Cancer Cause or Part of the Solution?

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the relationship between UV light, sun and Cancer. Dr. Dan Coit, a surgical oncologist that research melanomas or cancers of the skin and he found out that they are not related to sun exposure. Melanocytes are cells in the skin that release melanin that protects our skin against UV light. You get vitamin D from the sun and vitamin D is very protective against a lot of different types of cancer. He also talks about how some chemicals from the sunscreen can actually trigger cancer.

Hey guys so i want to talk about the relationship between the uv light, sun and cancer. So there’s definitely the thought out there that you need to stay out of the sun because it it’s going to cause cancer and i just want to talk about the different aspects because that is not hundred percent true. There’s a really good doctor that you should look into if you wanted to know more information about this. He is a surgical oncologist and his name is Dr. Dan Coit. He research melanomas which are the cancer of the skin. And he basically found out they are not related to the sun exposure. Which is quite interesting. Melanocytes are cells in the skin that release melanin which is a pigment that protects our skin against that UV light. That is what supposed to happen. Now you when you get sun you get vitamin D and Vitamin d is very protective against cancer not just in the skin but in a lot of different types of cancer. So why would the sun give you cancer if the sun gives you vitamin D that’s suppose to protect you against cancer. Here’s what i think that is happening I think of a couple things number one If you’re consuming a lot of sugar that you are setting your body up for a lot of oxidative damage. And you get a repetitive sunburns which causes inflammation and which we know cancer tends to go in the areas of the inflammation. So that’s bad and you don’t want to do that but the other thing is sunscreen actually have chemicals that are carcinogenic. Some of the chemicals of some of the sunscreen Actually can trigger cancer. So here you are putting stuff in your skin its absorbing into the bloodstream number one and number two it is blocking the vitamin D absorption so now you don’t have the benefit of vitamin D but we get the chemicals because we are thinking that “Oh yea it is the sun that is causing the cancer” So we need the kind of align this information into something that makes sense. First of all you don’t want to over do it with the sun. You don’t want to also do tanning beds because you are getting a different type of UV. It is true that the sun does give some radiation that does cause damage in the cells but normally we are supposed to have antioxidants in our cells that protects us. Normally we supposed to have enough vitamin D to protect us and enough melanin in the skin to protect us. So i think if you are consuming very healthy foods a lot of antioxidant and you’re not overdoing it with too much sun so you don’t get burned, I believe that the sun is going to be healthy for the skin.
