Recent lab studies in rats suggest a synthetic vitamin A added to sunscreen is actually increasing the rate of malignant melanoma.

Wiki says……….

Retinyl palmitate, or vitamin A palmitate is the ester of retinol (vitamin A) and palmitic acid, with formula C36H60O2.

Palmitate is the major component of palm oil…………………………

Retinyl palmitate is a synthetic alternate for retinyl acetate in vitamin A supplements, and is available in oily or dry forms. It is a common vitamin supplement, available in both oral and injectable forms for treatment of vitamin A deficiency, under the brand names Aquasol A, Palmitate A and many others. It is a pre-formed version of vitamin A, therefore the intake should not exceed the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). Overdosing preformed Vitamin A forms such as retinyl palmitate leads to adverse physiological reactions (hypervitaminosis A).[1]

Retinyl palmitate is used as an antioxidant and a source of vitamin A added to low fat milk and other dairy products to replace the vitamin content lost through the removal of milk fat. Palmitate is attached to the alcohol form of vitamin A, retinol, in order to make vitamin A stable in milk.[citation needed]

Retinyl palmitate is also a constituent of some topically-applied skin care products. After its absorption into the skin, retinyl palmitate is converted to retinol, and ultimately to retinoic acid (the active form of vitamin A present in Retin-A).

Notice it says….”¬†added to low fat milk and other dairy products to replace the vitamin content lost through the removal of milk fat.”

And, isn’t palm oil used in some of the¬†natural peanut butters?

Yet another reason to drink raw milk and take your cod liver oil
