Photoprotective and anti-skin-aging effects of eicosapentaenoic acid in human skin in vivo
I feel that our fear-mongering with sunlight exposure and skin cancer has done more harm than good (as usual…). Instead of focusing on rational sun exposure and the implications that a poor quality diet can increase the risk for skin cancers, we tell people to slap on SPF 75 to walk to the car. The result? Still no focus on the fault of low intakes of healthier fats on the increase in melanoma in kids (do you think today’s kids get more or less sun exposure??) and endemic levels of Vit D deficiency.
This article again supports the concepts that healthy fats have a large contribution to the general health of our skin.
