Dear US Senators

March 28, 2010

Please add the 10% Tan Tax to your lawsuit against ObamaCare. Not only is it discriminatory against the mostly women-owned small businesses… it is discriminatory against the entire white race. That is illegal. And who says the fed has any authority to impose a service sales tax in the first place? Isn’t that a state “right”? The fed gas tax is NOT a service tax… it is a legal “excise” tax per gallon on an interstate commodity.

Contrary to sensational media reports… there is no valid scientific evidence that tanning beds cause or increase the risk of skin cancer. No case-controlled peer reviewed studies have ever been done. Only a UN IARC report summarizing faulty results of years-old flawed studies. The AAD, big pharma skin creams, beauty mags, and cancer “societies” then all piled on to convince congress to abandon the “botax” and hit the tanning salons instead. All of the above are financially supported by the likes of Coppertone and other SPF cream makers.

Sincerely,

The People You Supposedly Work For

Climate destroyed on the way to meeting about saving the world

December 7, 2009

What a pile of horsecrap.

Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes…produce as much carbon dioxide as a town the size of Middlesbrough.

On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the “summit to save the world”, which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.

“We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention,” she says. “But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report.”

Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. “We haven’t got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand,” she says. “We’re having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden.”

Indoor tanning results in high Vitamin D levels sez Boston Univ.

Just ‘D’ facts

Vitamin D isn’t a supplement or a vitamin. It’s a hormone made naturally when your skin is exposed to sunlight. No dietary source for “The Sunshine Vitamin” even comes close to vitamin D levels made naturally from UVB exposure.

What’s important is that 77 percent of Americans are vitamin D deficient, according to government data. The vitamin D research community now recommends vitamin D blood levels of 40-60 ng/ml – levels that nature meant for you to get from regular non-burning UV exposure. Any dermatologist who tells you otherwise is ignoring the facts and clings to the irrational sun-phobia that causes vitamin D deficiency.
Indoor tanners’ average vitamin D levels are 42-49 ng/ml, according to Boston University research — sufficient levels, and 90 percent higher than the rest of the population. That comes as no surprise; a single tanning session makes more vitamin D than 100 glasses of milk. In contrast, an Australian study reveals that dermatologists at the end of summer, when vitamin D levels should be their highest, are severely vitamin D deficient at 13.8 ng/ml.
So who’s in the dark here?
Vitamin D research has proven conclusively that you are designed to interact with sunlight, just as you are designed to breath air, drink water and eat food. It’s just a matter of time before dermatology and chemical sunscreen manufacturers are exposed for overstating the risks of UV – falsely suggesting that risks associated with repeated sunburn are also related to regular, non-burning exposure. That convenient omission has skyrocketed chemical sunscreen sales, turning a sunburn-prevention product into a daily over-use product. And that has contributed to vitamin D deficiency.

It’s time to expose yourself to something that should be obvious: It’s time to let the sun back into your life.
