"Wear sunscreen. If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it."
Come on, a real Stetson hat is far better, cooler, mine is made of straw!
For hundreds of thousands of years we were outside most of the day, without any sunscreen lotion. Off course we adapted to the sun (except if eat modern processed junk)...now people mostly sit inside on their arse, and must wear sunscreen lotion when outside half an hour? . Hats on other hand must be quite old (and good) invention. Straw hats good in summer, they breath... this summer I had my office under a tree...wonderful, shadow and rain protection for my computer.
there isn’t much evidence to conclusively prove that daily sunscreen use can prevent most skin cancers, a research review concludes.
"This study, done in Australia, monitored about 1,600 people for more than four years and didn’t find a meaningful difference in the number of new cancer cases detected based on whether people used sunscreen every day or only occasionally."

Neurotoxic effect of active ingredients in sunscreen products, a contemporary review
"Numerous studies raised concerns about the association between exposure to substances commonly found in sunscreens and endocrine and developmental impairments. In this review, the potential neurotoxicity of such substances is presented and the question of cost-benefit is raised regarding large scale use of sunscreen in its current composition. Although most studies reviewed in this paper reported adverse neurotoxic effects of UV filters at concentrations substantially higher that those observed in environment and human tissues, these studies should not be disregarded as they afford potential pathomechanisms which might occur in other conditions or sensitive populations. It is noteworthy, that gene x environment interactions vis-à-vis toxicity of sunscreen components has yet to be studied. Unfortunately, the effects of repeated, long-term and low-dose exposures to single compounds and mixtures of various UV filters is also poorly studied."
you already have a bamboo toothbrush, now get a hat!
