Comparing Sunscreens - 07/07/14

When it comes to sunscreen, there are more options than ever.  Labels can be confusing but three things to consider when buying are brand, price, and ingredients.

There's a big movement toward natural or organic sunscreens with a lot of people worried about chemicals found in the traditional types.  The question, though, is whether the natural products work as well. 

Dr. Jeffery Dover, president of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery says they do.

If you're looking for sunscreen without some chemicals that have been linked to health problems, avoid anything that ends in -ate, -one, and -ene.

Natural or organic sunscreens can be more expensive but if you do some comparison shopping, you can save a good bit.

Here are a couple of links that can help you compare products, ingredients and prices.

MANNING RECORD - KEEP-AWAY

DENVER (AP) -- It was a game of keep-way -- with Peyton Manning's record-breaking football. Manning set the new mark in NFL career touchdown passes last night against the San Francisco 49ers. Manning's teammates had a little fun with him after throwing TD 509. When Manning went to get the ball, his fellow Broncos played keep-away. Manning jokes his teammates were picking on him. Manning finally did get the ball, but he didn't get to hold it very long. It's going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Manning threw another TD for a total of four, in the Broncos 42-17 victory at home.

TEEN CANDIDATE

DACONO, Colo. (AP) -- If Jory Coates wins a city council seat -- he'll have to toast his victory with soda pop. At 18, Coates is old enough to vote but not to drink. He's running for the Dacono, Colorado, City Council. He's a recent high school graduate and works in a pizzeria. He's funding his campaign with about 100 bucks he's made at his pizza job. Coates is using the money to buy signs and posters. But Coates isn't sure his future is in politics. He tells the Longmont Times-Call he also wants to study to become an emergency medical technician or a nurse.

BEE HOBBY

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Michele Boling says she has a healthy respect for boxes full of bugs. She better -- because Boling is an amateur beekeeper. Her hives in Bowling Green, Kentucky, produce honey and beeswax. She says in the two years since she got her first hive, beekeeping has moved from a hobby to a passion. She tells a local paper (Daily News), she sometimes wishes that people were more like bees. Boling says bees are never out for themselves but only for the good of the hive.
