Beware of Aaron Rodgers’ advice on sunscreen: Protect your skin

Dr. Anthony Fauci, not content with spreading misinformation about the COVID vaccine, the therapeutic effects of the sounds of dolphin sex, and “the softening” of society, has “liked” a tweet on X which extolled the evil effects of sunscreen.

It’s funny how Rodgers seems not to believe in Western medical advice unless it helps him get back on the field in time for the playoffs, especially since the Jets are not making it this year. I wonder how many Pfizer products his medical team used in his Achilles surgery?

Rodgers caused another stir on the internet by “liking” a tweet from former offensive tackle Rusell Okung, where he described a “proud” moment of explaining to his child why “other people” use sunscreen. Okung went on to explain his position.

It’s only a matter of time before ESPN’s Pat McAfee asks Rodgers about this “controversy” on his show. More and more young, white women on TikTok and Insta are being convinced that sunscreen is bad for them, full of toxic chemicals, and will prevent them from making their own Vitamin D.

According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is “by far” the most common form of cancer in the United States. A controversy surrounding sunscreen began in 2019 when the Food and Drug Administration requested safety information from sunscreen manufacturers on 12 ingredients in their products. Additionally, a lab found the carcinogen benzene in several sun care products. However, the products were contaminated with benzene, so it was a quality control issue, not a problem inherent in sunscreen itself.

Another issue people have with sunscreen is that tests have shown possible links between sunscreen chemicals and changes in kidney, reproductive, and hormone function, as well as an increase in cancer risk. However, there is no conclusive evidence that sunscreen is harmful to humans.

Switching from chemical sunscreen to mineral sunscreen may be a precaution, but there isn’t much scientific evidence that sunscreen is “toxic” or “bad” for you. Medical researchers want to assure you that sunscreen is not “sunblocking your blessings,” and that it is not killing you.

Overall, you are far more likely to get skin cancer by not wearing sunscreen than you are exhibiting symptoms from harmful chemicals. There is no evidence that sunscreen is harmful, and medical researchers around the world support its use. But Aaron Rodgers has never been one to research anything before spouting off about it.
