'An individual’s view of health determinants is directly correlated to their sources and how they process information. Regardless of its accuracy, when something is repeated a sufficient number of times, people will start to believe it. 

The cancer and sunscreen industries have made it their mission to convince the world that sunlight is a primary cause of skin cancer, when it[in] fact it has been shown to prevent it. 

In fact, considerable evidence shows that blocking the sun's rays from reaching our skin with, for example sunscreen, significantly decreases our uptake of vitamin D levels, leading to higher mortality, critical illness, mental health disorders and cancer itself.'
