Chemicals from sunscreen get into your blood: Here’s what that means
TUESDAY, May 7, 2019 (Fox)–When people slather on sunscreen, chemicals in the products are absorbed into the bloodstream, and the health effects are still unknown, a new government study reports.
The study, conducted by researchers at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), found that sunscreen chemicals leach into people’s blood rather quickly and reach levels high enough to warrant further testing on the substances’ safety.
Importantly, the findings, published today (May 6) in the journal JAMA, do not mean that people should stop using sunscreen, especially given the very serious and well-known risks of sun exposure, researchers said.
