There’s this notion in many health communities that fat is inherently bad for you! Sure, TOO much fat and the WRONG kinds of fats are bad for you, but don’t shy away from healthy fat sources such as avocados, coconut, nuts, and seeds! I found that after increasing the amount of fats in my diet, my hormones aligned so much better–my skin started glowing, my hair looks better, I feel happier, my energy levels are higher, and I feel more satisfied with my meals! Now, I can’t go a day without some sunflower seed butter, almonds, or tahini. YUM!
A recent study discovered the application of certain moisturizers increases the incidence of skin cancer in high-risk mice, but these animals were subjected to UVB radiation in high doses over a long period of time prior to application of moisturizers.  Four popular moisturizers were tested, providing the same result. It is not yet known if the same applies to humans. A fifth moisturizer, specially prepared without mineral oil and sodium lauryl sulphate , had no such effect.  The researchers asked Johnson & Johnson to produce this cream for the study, which the pharmaceutical company later patented. [ citation needed ]
