'It’s well-known that antioxidants can provide a myriad of health benefits — including protection against sunburn and the damage it causes. But according to the FDA, only drugs and creams that have been made by their industry masters can offer health benefits. Is toxic sunscreen really the only option consumers have when it comes to protecting themselves against sun damage — or is the FDA really just that ridiculous?
Recently, the FDA cracked down on a number of manufacturers who were producing “sunscreen supplements,” antioxidant mixes featuring compounds like lycopene, lutein and zeaxthanin. Multiple studies have pointed to the benefits of these phytonutrients — including their ability to ward off sun damage.
But evidently, the FDA views sun damage as a “disease,” and that means making claims of sun protection are “disease claims.”
In a press release, the FDA revealed that they had sent warning letters to the makers of sun protection supplements. The agency accused the supplement companies of “putting people’s health at risk by giving consumers a false sense of security that a dietary supplement could prevent sunburn, reduce early skin aging caused by the sun, or protect from the risks of skin cancer.”
“There’s no pill or capsule that can replace your sunscreen,” the agency continued.
Is that really true? Or is this claim just more industry-funded, anti-science racket from an agency that has continuously shown that it’s unable (or unwilling?) to actually protect consumers from corporate interests?'
