Evidence emerges that 45% of common sunscreen ingredients mess with sperm function.
Researchers have found that 13 out of 29 UV filters used in sunscreens in the US and Europe can disrupt the function of human sperm cells - with some even mimicking the effect of the female hormone progesterone, and messing with sperm mobility.
"Our study suggests that regulatory agencies should have a closer look at the effects of UV filters on fertility before approval," said lead researcher Niels Skakkebaek from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
I now know there are steps I can take to change how I think, to find the true me again. That is why I am going to take better care of myself this year. In fact, that’s the only resolution I care to make. For both my own health, and as an important example to my kids, this year, I'm resolving to practice a kindness that starts from within.
