Health officials are super angry after supermodel Gisele Bundchen remarked that she doesn’t use sunscreen because she thinks it’s “poison.”
According to the Daily Mail, Bundchen (who only sunbathes before 8 a.m., when the sun’s rays do the least damage) said, “I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic.”
The controversial remarks were made at the launch of the 30-year-old’s organic skin care line.
Since then, many skincare experts have come forward to refute her claims. Dolival Loao, the head of dermatology at Brazil’s National Cancer Institute, said “Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer … When a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion.”
Readers, has Bundchen scared you away from using sunscreen, or will you continue using the “poison” to avoid melanoma?
