Subject:         raw food diet and skin cancer question
Date: March 26, 2009 at 12:08 pm PST

Several friends have told me that you don't need to worry
about sun exposure or protection from the sun if you eat a
raw foods diet. I am very skeptical, but all I can find on
the subject comes from raw foods sites and blogs. Has
there been any testing of this. is there anything to it?

As far as I can see, the theory is that eating raw foods
helps your skin rid itself of "toxins" so that you won't
get skin cancer or wrinkles from the sun (that is the
simplified version).

Here's a quote: "When the body rids itself of toxins, it
passes through the skin which is the largest elimination
organ. Raw food increases your detoxification rate.
Drinking water helps the body rid itself of toxins. Seaweed
is high in vitamins and minerals beneficial to the skin and
also helps rid the body of toxins."

Is there really anything to this? This is a serious claim
and I know some young, fair-skinned women who are not
protecting themselves or their children from the sun
because of this advice.
