    Need Vitamin D? Try Mushrooms

    It seems to me that you aren't interested in having a discussion based on reason and science; I have addressed your points scientifically, but you have not addressed any of mine. You state your beliefs without giving any justification for them: without data, without research, and without any...

    Need Vitamin D? Try Mushrooms

    While there is a general message from the mainstream media that advocates the use of sunscreen, I think that you'll find the scientific community is not claiming that spending time in the sun will kill, nor should anyone be fearful of being in the sun--on the contrary, a well informed public is...

    Need Vitamin D? Try Mushrooms

    I think you are purposely obscuring the nature of UV exposure or genuinely do not understand the meaning of cancer risk. First of all, I am not aware of any group or health organization that states that the sun should be avoided at all costs, nor that UV exposure will 100% lead to skin cancer...

    Feeling lost

    I can't say that I have ever experienced depression, but I can absolutely say that it is okay to question God. The Scripture is full of godly people who have questioned God in their time of hardships; we all want to know why we have to go through certain things, we all want to know why things...

    Poll re. good tattoo artist career for a Christian woman

    I agree with you as well. While I have no interest in ever getting a tattoo and do not personally like them, they can have significant meaning for someone else.

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    A 6-9% increase in parts of the world is a significant increase, and the areas of the world where the UV has increased also see the increased incidences in skin cancer. It is the single largest contributor and predictor to skin cancer prevalence. You have to remember, the creation was perfect...

    Reasons Why I HATE christians so much.

    While the OP is painting with a broad brush, I cannot fault him for feeling the way he does. Everything he has said, I have also experienced.

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    Correct again. The main cause for the increased UV penetrating the atmosphere is a decreased level of stratospheric ozone. Increases are between 9-20%, depending on geographic location. The longer wavelength and low energy of radio waves is what makes them unable to pass through clothing and...

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    Yes, that is correct: age is not the only reason for the increased cancer incidence, but it is a major factor in most types of cancer. You are also correct in stating that our generation is exposed to higher amounts of UV radiation in the past, which would explain the increased incidence of...

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    Again, like I said, there are also environmental factors at play. For example, the amount of UV radiation that penetrates through the atmosphere has increased over the last three decades, and with it there is an increased incidence of skin cancer. Also, you are misrepresenting what I said...

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    I agree, appropriate clothing to protect from the sun is much better than using sun screens; I had actually said that in my original post, but it looks like no one noticed. I pretty much said everything Claudya said, but in scientific terms. I think only people are are extreme would advocate...

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    Thank you, it's good to be back. Studying is going fine, but keeping me very busy. Your bring up some good concerns, let me try to address them. The real problem is not that melanin is no longer effective, it is. Melanin acts as a barrier to protect the DNA in the nucleus from damaging UV...

    Many Melanoma Survivors Skip Sunscreen

    I think there is a misunderstanding here about the mechanism of how sunlight increases cancer risk. Obviously, sunlight exposure is required for vitamin D synthesis, which is necessary as a gene transcription factor to increase the expression of calcium channels in the lumen of the small...

    Heaven helps those who help themselves

    No foundation in Scripture at all. In fact, it is unbiblical as it contradicts the Bible's message of God's kindness and grace toward humanity, who do not deserve it at all. In fact, God sent Christ to die for us precisely because of the fact that we cannot help ourselves.
