9,700.That’s how many American lives will be lost to melanoma this year. Take action for safer sunscreen ingredients!

sun-protection-sunscreen spf 148363_1280It’s been 15 years since the Food and Drug Administration last approved a new general usage, over-the-counter sunscreen ingredient. With melanoma rates tripling over the last 35 years, it is unconscionable that the United States still does not have access to safe and effective ingredients that have been available for years in the European Union, Canada, Japan and Australia.

But we could finally be seeing real change in the sunscreen industry when the Senate votes on the Sunscreen Innovation Act this week. If passed, the act would set firm deadlines for the FDA to review and act on sunscreen ingredients that have been used safely and effectively in countries all over the world.

If you want to see real change at last in the sunscreen industry, your senator must hear from you today. This can’t wait.

Take action for safer sunscreen ingredients!

The federal Food and Drug Administration last approved a general usage, over-the-counter sunscreen ingredient in 1999, and six new ingredients – already used in sunscreens in Europe and other parts of the world – have been awaiting a decision for more than eight years.

The Sunscreen Innovation Act could be coming up for a vote in the Senate THIS WEEK. The bill aims to alleviate the FDA’s backlog by expediting reviews of promising sunscreen ingredients while ensuring that the agency has the authority to keep unsafe ingredients off the market. This would give consumers more, and safer, options.

If you agree that consumers in the United States deserve access to the same ingredients used in sunscreens in the EU, Canada, Japan, and Australia, please tell your senator to support the Sunscreen Innovation Act today.

Heatwave for Southern California – Have a Sun Safe Weekend

LA WEATHER FORECAST SEPTEMBER 12 2014Los Angeles, CA – The heat wave across Southern California will continue today amid temperatures in the high 90s and low 100s,

“An upper level ridge of high pressure will build over the area this weekend, setting the stage for an extended period of heat for Southwestern California,” the National Weather Service said in a statement. “Afternoon temperatures will begin to climb today and Saturday as the onshore flow will be very weak.”

Temperatures will be 15-20 degrees above normal for this time of year, NWS Meteorologist Joe Sirard said. What the NWS calls a “decent heat wave” began Thursday.

“There is going to be some triple-digit heat Friday into Saturday and more widespread on Sunday,” when some record or near-record highs are forecast, Sirard said.

Can Frequent Flying Raise Melanoma Risk?

plane airplane melanoma skin cancer

Airline pilots and cabin crews appear to develop melanoma at significantly higher rates, when compared with the general population, a new evaluation of previously conducted studies shows.

The lead author of the new analysis, Dr. Susana Ortiz-Urda, co-director of the UCSF Melanoma Center at the University of California, San Francisco and colleagues combined the results of 19 studies that tracked pilots & flight crews from the 1940s until 2008. The studies mostly examined European countries, especially those in Scandinavia, with onlyfive studies looking at crews in the United States.

What is not clear is if the increased risk comes from exposure to higher levels of UVA through the airplanes glass window or if airplane crews are experiencing higher levels of sun exposure on the ground when sunbathing between flights.

Dr. Susana Ortiz-Urda, co-director of the UCSF Melanoma Center at the University of California, San Francisco, believes this new analysis to be “very worrisome.” She wants airlines to change their windows to give greater protection against in particular the UVA rays of the sun which are significantly stronger at higher altitudes.

Melanoma can also be deadly; around 10,000 people will die of melanoma in 2014.

There is significantly increased exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation at higher altitudes. “At 9000 meters [about 30,000 feet], where most commercial aircraft fly, the UV level is approximately twice that of the ground,” researcher said.

A Federal Aviation Administration report shows that windshields block almost all of the UVB rays from the sun, but glass windshields allow as much as 54 percent of UVA rays through. Both UVB and UVA have been shown to cause damage to the DNA in cells, which can lead to skin cancer.

The new analysis was published in the Sept. 3 online edition of the journal JAMA Dermatology.

Could the Cure for Cancer be Found in the Cat Box?

Cat kitten cure cancer

According to recent reports there is a bacteria inside the digestive tract of felines (house cats) that loves to eat cancer cells.

T. gondiiis a single-celled parasite that is most often found in a cat’s intestines, but it can live in any warm-blooded animal.

“We know biologically this parasite has figured out how to stimulate the immune responses you want to fight cancer,” said David J. Bzik, PhD, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

The way it works is cancer can shut down the body’s defensive mechanisms, but introducing T. gondii into a tumor environment can kick-start the immune system.

Bzik and senior research associate of microbiology and immunology Barbara Fox, created “cps,” an immunotherapeutic vaccine, as a safer alternative to injecting a cancer patient with the much more dangerous live replicating strains of T. gondii,.

Using “cps” to treat mouse models for melanoma, the study published by Geisel School of Medicine, shows unprecedented high rates of melanoma.

While this research is preliminary there is hope that this might lead to more effective treatment for skin cancer in the next few years.

Meanwhile stay sun safe during hot summer months when the sun is strongest.
