Like many of you, I subscribe to Google Alerts. This is a wonderful tool provided by Google where by their mighty search engine forwards to one’s inbox a brief synopsis of media reports on given subjects which one chooses. I have chosen allergies and asthma, so everyday I receive dozens of references to these subjects. The problem is that the overwhelming majority of the articles that Google picks up are not reputable sources.

Today, sunscreens are used daily by some and are often found in combination with cosmetics and other skin products.
