    Good video....I just had surgery last Thursday where the VA removed 3 cancers from my back, shoulder and neck. Not fun. May parents are English/Scottish and Irish. Mom has red hair and skin tone. I get burned when I check the mail, so I wear sun screen everywhere....just not enough when I was young. Tomorrow is the date for the follow up and stitches to come out.....20 of them.

    I had skin cancer removed a few years back. I was luck in that it was non-life threatening and localized, but it sure woke me up. I hope that all is well with your follow up.

    Highly insensitive comment. My 30 year old sister in law just had a chunk of melanoma removed from her scalp. She's now in aggressive chemo as it wasn't caught in time.

    I'm guessing you were joking with your comment...

    I've been golfing most of my life and working at a golf course for 7 years, so the ol lady gets super concerned about me working in the sun. She checks me every once in a while and has made me go to the doc once. Clean so far!

    The chemicals in the sunscreen is what is causing the skin cancer. The skin is the largest organ of the human body. There are other ways to prevent sunburn besides slathering toxic, cancer causing chemicals all over yourself. The sun provides the body with badly needed Vitamin D. Over 90% of the population is vitamin D deficient. Don't believe the scare tactics of the mainstream media. If you do your research you will find that the incidence of skin cancer started when the powers that be told you the sun was bad for you and they wanted you to start slathering yourself with sunscreen and staying out of the sun. Most cancer can be prevented, mainly by NOT doing what the mainstream media tells you to do.

    I work outside for my job and I never will and have not used sunscreen in well over 20 years now. I eat a PROPER diet, get plenty of rest and take a bunch of antioxidants daily. Including a very powerful antioxidant called ASTAXANTHIN. It is a natural sunscreen that works from the inside out. Many of you may not, will not and will never do the research to live a healthy life because it is WORK. But IMO cancer is caused and can be prevented. They also have cures for cancer but you will never know about them because the CANCER INDUSTRY is MAKING to much MONEY to let you know cancer can be cured and or prevented. Sorry if this offends anyone but I have been doing the research for going on 11 years now and I will NEVER, EVER, put a drop of sunscreen on my body.

    I know there is a lot of cancer out there but I believe MOST, not ALL, but most can be prevented. I hope you or a loved one never has to go through that horrible disease. Thanks for letting me voice my opinion. I will not get into an argument with anyone over this subject as I will never be able to change your mind and you will not be able to change mine.
