Which one is worse?

Sun or sunblock? If I only stay in the sun for one hour a day, should I use sunblock? I found out that some of the ingredients in the sunblock actually cause skin cancer.

  • you do need sun. it's good for your physical and mental health. an hour a day is ok i would think.

  • i believe sun is good for your health, and sunblock is bad for your health. will get burned within 10 minutes, then i believe protective clothing should be first choice.
