The full news article is fairly balanced but people seem to be reacting just based on the headline and first few sentences. In the news article, they say many times to still wear sunscreen, and also clearly state that this was only pilot study, only one ingredient showed statistically significant levels (not the same as clinically significant), and the people used over 2x more sunscreen than most people do for “typical use” (75% of the body covered by sunscreen, 4x a day).
It kind of seemed like they changed authors after the title and first paragraphs
For those who are very concerned about the ingredients in the article, I encourage you to use mineral sunscreens made with ingredients such as zinc oxide that have their SPF well-established.
However you do it, please protect your skin! Aside from skin cancer concerns, sun damage is also one of the biggest causes of premature aging and things like wrinkles, lost elasticity, uneven skin tone spots, etc.
