A University of Miami study released today shows that blacks are more than three times as likely to be diagnosed with late-stage melanoma than whites. The study, published in the Archives of Dermatology, reviewed 1,690 melanoma cases to reach the conclusion.

Researchers are not able to fully explain the disparity, but suggested that because skin cancer is more likely to occur in light-skinned people, whites tend to receive more attention and earlier diagnosis. The main challenge in blacks is that melanoma is not detected in its early stages and is allowed to progress to a point where it may become life threatening.

Nowhere in scientific discussions of skin cancer is there any rational evaluation of the role of sunlight as a healing therapy. A growing collection of scientific evidence shows that sensible sunlight exposure produces vitamin D, which acts as powerful anti-cancer medicine and halts the growth of cancer tumors. Vitamin D therapy, research shows, slashes the risk of breast cancer by over 50 percent while also reducing skin cancer risk.

In other words, sensible sunlight actually prevents skin cancer, while sunscreen products promote cancer by infusing the skin with carcinogenic chemicals and fragrance synthetics commonly used in sunscreen products. Sunscreen is not a cancer prevention product, and sunscreen manufacturers are now engaged in class action lawsuits that claim many sunscreen products offer little or no real protection against skin cancer in the first place, or that such products mislead consumers regarding the degree of protection.

The dermatology industry, however, maintains strong financial ties to sunscreen manufacturers, and the position of dermatology continues to be based on the now-outdated idea that all sun is bad for you, and all sunscreen ingredients and chemicals are harmless.

Even the American Cancer Society, which promotes sunscreen use, maintains strong financial ties to sunscreen manufacturers and other consumer products companies that sell products containing synthetic chemicals to the public. A new book to be released tomorrow, The Hundred-Year Lie by Randall Fitzgerald, exposes many of the deceptions and distortions used to promote personal care products.

The real reason why blacks are more likely to be diganosed with late-stage melanoma is because people with black skin need more sunlight exposure than those with white skin in order to generate the same amount of vitamin D. That's because dark skin pigmentation blocks ultraviolet light, which is used by the body to produce vitamin D. Accordingly, most people with dark skin living in North America suffer from chronic vitamin D deficiencies that predispose them to many types of cancer, including melanoma.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
