Oxybenzone may be effective at filtering UV light, but it comes at a dangerously high cost to human health.

Chemical sunscreens have received a lot of press in recent months, with HawaiiPalau, Aruba, Bonaire, and now Key West all banning their sale and use. There is growing concern over the toxicity of chemicals used in the formulas, primarily oxybenzone and octinoxate, and the harm they cause both to human and marine health.

I've never used these out of some instinct; especially when I learned they don't even prevent cancer causing rays to penetrate. What concerns me is the way I've seen people slather their infants with sunscreen which just seems perverse. As Summer approaches, don't fall into the trap.

I tried sunscreens one summer but something felt wrong with my skin. Hats and long sleeve shirts provide plenty of protection after the short time getting what feels like the right amount of sun. I burned and peeled many times as a kid but I was smart enough to stop that foolishness and now limit my sun exposure.
