SPF is bad

Today, while heading to school..
I was listening to the radio and they mentioned that researchers have found that SPF may actually increase your chance of cancer or at least "lead" you in that direction...especially the really high SPF lotions/sunscreen. Some even say ifs SPF 100 or something big, but really thats probably not good... I don't know the head on facts, but thats just the general overview of it. I find it quite shocking that we don't know what is exactly in the products we use on a daily basis. If you really think about it, it's kinda scary. I mean this isn't going to lead you to death-well at least we hope not- but we thought SPF was nothing but good...and look at the new info they released...

Maybe they mean that we think spf is protecting us from everything, which is not true.Not that spf is bad or is leading us to harming our cells and DNA.But maybe we're overestimating it.

@Ria-
well yah theyre saying that the sunscreen that has way too much spf isn't true and they also stated that the newer "developed" ones aren't protecting you from cancer really its more like they have some cancer elements in it. like nothing major or something like that...
