This just appeared in the UK newspaper Guardian's weekly Flyer (travel) newsletter:

"Rethink your sunscreen
(Photo in the original)
"While sunscreens are crucial for UV protection, recent research indicates that once certain chemical ingredients, particularly oxybenzone and octinoxate, enter the water, they become harmful to humans and nature, and have been implicated in coral reef bleaching.

"In a world first, last May (2018?) Hawaii passed legislation that will ban the sale and distribution of any non-prescription sunscreen containing these chemicals (found in 78% of the most popular brands) from 2021. The Caribbean island of Bonaire followed in the same month. The most comprehensive ban so far is in the small Pacific island nation of Palau, which is to ban the buying, selling, importing or manufacturing of sunscreen and skincare products that contain these chemicals and eight additional ones, from 2020.

"The trend will continue in 2019. More than 30 countries and 19 US states are currently discussing the issue or have bills progressing. Expect more consumer pressure to make manufacturers review and improve their products, and provide clearer labelling.

"Dr Catherine Wilson, freelance writer specialising in sustainability, tourism and technology"

I am certainly not qualified to comment on this article, I offer it only as yet another piece of possibly useful information.

As a physician-scientist (albeit a retired one), I try to keep a skeptical but open mind about health issues. For example, I support the de-criminalization of marijuana, but, pending the arrival of good data, I am not yet persuaded that cannabis has the broad health benefits claimed by its proponents. (Note: Please spare us the anecdotal stories of how cannabis or CBD cured your dandruff or whatever. I don't doubt the stories, but they're not data. And this post isn't really about cannabis anyway.) I have advocated the use of sunscreens and the development of better sunscreens in this forum for many years. However ... I am always willing to listen to other points of view. Richard Weller is a contrarian dermatologist with some very interesting ideas. I'm not saying he's right or wrong, but I'm looking forward to his forthcoming peer-reviewed publication. As always, my motto remains "Moderation in all things".

You just beat me to this. I logged on to post the same link.
I, and probably many others here, would be interested in hearing your comments Naturistdoc.

Not lewd, not crude, just nude.

Nudists are everywhere, but they're hard to identify with their clothes on.

The UK Daily Mail has this article about sunscreens, which doesn’t really provide much information.

Neither a PubMed search nor a look at Dr. Weller's website indicated that he's published his study yet. I'll check periodically and report his results when they're avaialble.
