Does Sunscreen Cause Cancer?

I’ve read  articles saying the chemicals in sunscreen can cause cancer. But I don’t know.

Nature

Yet I do know chemicals are not natural for the human body. With all the different circumstances that we are exposed to concerning chemicals, the best thing would be to use something natural when possible. There are a few natural things you can try.  Coconut oil has a natural sunscreen in it.  Although it’s not as strong as commercial products and it does need to be re-applied often.  Is your health worth the tiny bit more effort of re-application?

My grand daughter had the right idea. Use a hat to shade your face.

Several of us went boating last weekend. Two of us applied coconut oil while the others used commercial sunscreen. The two of us that used the coconut oil did not burn at all.  Some of the others did burn that used the sunscreen.  Hmmm, maybe it was just a coincidence.

A chemical is a substance that has been prepared artificially.

God made all substances and put certain substances together. He did it perfectly!

When bumbling man puts substances together, sometimes it does not go so well.

Just like imperfect man messes up a lot with chemicals, his ideas are messed up as well. We get confused with these ideas and then our thoughts become distorted.

Religion is man’s ideas and it has distorted something beautiful. There is a difference between religion and relationship. One can have a fantastic relationship with God through Jesus and not be religious.  There are many religious people who do not know God or His Son.  Think about that one.

Jesus is the bridge between man and God.

He bridged the gap for us.

Sometimes man’s ideas like chemicals are fake.  Now these ideas have caused distortion of man’s view of the Christ. They do not know Jesus as the bridge anymore.

Sometimes chemicals can work out ok. Sometimes nature has been messed up by man or by the problems brought on from the curse of sin. But I am writing about these things in the general sense. I’m not writing as an argument.

Do the chemicals in sunscreen cause skin cancer? I don’t know, but I trust nature more than I trust man.

Have man’s ideas not always been accurate? No. Like chemicals, they have caused problems. I trust God more than I trust man’s ideas.

 

Back To Reality

Has life thrown you a curve? Is the fast lane too fast? Perhaps life is entirely too slow…It could be that the bewilderment beast is stalking you.

Maybe you don’t even know what the problem is. Yet, there is a solution!

You need your feet to touch solid ground. You ask, “What do you mean by that?”

Theres no denying that technology can be fun...BUT...

Technology can be fun or frustrating. It could be profitable. It certainly is entertaining at times.  But it has taken us away from our mother. We are made from the earth. Our bodies are part of her. Our feet need to be put back in contact with the solid ground.  Slowly we have been disengaged from a solid foundation.  We are often just flying in auto pilot.

When we actually take off our shoes and touch the earth, slowly we reconnect with reality and self.  If we can’t do that, try growing flowers or vegetables, even if in a pot or in an unusual object. Those  that make make a wonderful container for dirt. Maybe you can go hiking in the woods with a friend or your best friend, the dog. Make the break with technology for awhile and reach for reality.

Floating down the river is a wonderful way to connect to reality.

When you place your feet on the ground, then you can place your mind on God’s love. You will see it in His creation. And a certain peace will flood the soul.

An unusual container might be a cup!
