Antioxidants OK in the sun

September 17, 2009


Antioxidants help our skin stay healthy and younger looking and skin is adversely affected by being exposed unprotected to the sun. You want to avoid wrinkles, and you want a healthy glow so what do you do? Many people take antioxidant supplements but there have been previous alerts that they could increase the risk of melanoma, particularly in women.

This is now shown not to be true, based on an analysis of data from a population study of almost 70,000 participants. So no need to give up a healthful supplement, but don’t give up using sun protection please!
