Hats, sunglasses and sunscreen: which of them really works?

As trivial as it might sound, the best sun protection out there is about wearing hats, sunglasses and clothes. You can also rely on zinc oxide and astaxanthin in that respect. And then there is sunscreen, which you shouldn’t actually rely on. For decades, doctors and media have been recommending the use of sunscreen before going outside. Why then, one might wonder, the incidence of cancer cases has increased dramatically since people started using sunscreen? Well, all these specialists avoid talking about the specific types of sunscreen that are actually efficient for their purpose.

The most interesting and unexpected news in the healthy food science. Scientists advise that we start once again getting used to milk from cows that are pastured freely in the open, to lard and its derivatives, and to other traditional saturated fats, such as the coconut oil. Throw away the rape, corn and soy oil. Keep away from anything that contains polyunsaturated fat. In truth, the only healthy oils are the coconut and the olive oils. Butter and mutton fat –very saturated fat products-and very healthy ones indeed (if the animals’ feed hasn’t been poisoned). Coconut oil is a unique product in terms of its capacity to prevent weight gain and treat obesity, as it stimulates the metabolism.
