Sunscreen Use Linked To Global Vitamin D Deficiency Problem

May 3, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Sunscreen is widely used to protect skin from cancer-causing overexposure to ultraviolet rays. But a new “evidence based clinical review” by U.S. researchers finds that the use of sunscreen has a downside: it contributes to the vitamin D deficiency (or insufficiency) experienced by as many as a billion people worldwide. Meanwhile, chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, Crohn's and celiac disease, greatly inhibit the body's ability to metabolize vitamin D from food sources. The researchers note that people spend less time outside; when they are out of doors, they often wear sunscreen. But, they note, it is possible to spend reasonable amounts of time in the sun while ensuring adequate vitamin D absorption.   [ Image credit: © Coppertone  ]

Israel Wages War Against High Prices Of Beauty And Personal Care Products

April 28, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Israel’s Economy Ministry is aiming to reduce prices of imported beauty and personal care products. Following the government agencies’ efforts to rein in prices of consumer products, including meat and cellphones, the Ministry is eyeing importers of cosmetics, toiletries, and other personal care products who, the government says, are charging local consumers more than residents of other countries. Results of a study by the Ministry revealed prices of beauty and personal care products in Israel are often the highest in the countries, including the 12 European Union countries, covered by the study. According to the government, a lack of free market and competition is a major cause of the high prices.
