Summer Is Here – Time for Sunscreen!

One reader recently unsubscribed from HealthBeat News, complaining that while he felt that our information (always offered free of charge) was accurate and valuable, he thought we were becoming "too commercial" – interested only in selling Dr. Myatt’s consultations and products. Hmmm… and just what does this fellow think funds all this great free information that comes every couple of weeks in this newsletter?

It’s true, we often suggest to people with complicated questions that a consultation with Dr. Myatt would save them time, trouble, and money in the long run, and we often do link vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other supplements mentioned in our articles to the appropriate product pages – mostly because there is usually a wealth of additional information about the item there but yes, there is also the opportunity to click the "Buy now" button…

There are also many articles that sell nothing. They provide information and techniques and strategies that folks can implement for free and use without charge to improve their health and their lives. How often does that happen? Useful information for free! Crazy, right?

Even crazier, Dr. Myatt will actually recommend products and send people to websites that don’t make her one thin dime! Why does she do that? Because it really is all about you, the reader, the subscriber, the patient. You have come to trust that HealthBeat News and Dr. Myatt’s suggestions, recommendations, and advice are straight up and honest. We will not abuse that trust, and if keeping your trust means that we tell you where to get the very best of something, even if it is not something we sell, then that’s what we will do for you.

So, with that in mind, (and that was a long-winded introduction, wasn’t it!) Dr. Myatt sent along this link to a comparison of a number of different brands of sunscreen and asked that I include it for you in HealthBeat News.

Summer is here, and sun protection is important to good health – but there is no sense slathering on a sunblock to protect your skin if it is filled with toxic and damaging chemicals!

See how your favorite brand measures up with this report from The Environmental Working Group.

Remember, sunshine is important to and necessary for our good health – but a sunburn is not!
