The report rated 73 lotions, sprays, and sticks for effectiveness and accuracy of SPF labeling. SPF, or sun protection factor, is the measure of how well a sunscreen protects against ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, which is the main cause of sunburn and a contributor to skin cancer. The report included sunscreens labeled SPF 30 or higher and, unless otherwise noted, had claims of water resistance for 80 minutes. "We do our own scientific, laboratory-based testing to identify differences in performance and give consumers a comparative evaluation," Trisha Calvo, deputy editor of health and food at Consumer Reports, told CBS News. "Every sunscreen is tested at the lab in the same way — and we use sunscreens we buy off the shelves, the way a consumer would."

Five years ago the couple from Arklow, Co Wicklow sought medical help after trying, and failing, to conceive. They attended a fertility clinic and Kristel started taking regular injections of fertility drugs. After eight months and no success they switched to Sims fertility clinic and tried a cycle of IVF. But despite Kristel producing viable eggs, the pregnancy was arrested — failing to continue even though the embryo had initially looked healthy. By this point the couple had spent around €20,000 and Paul had done three separate semen analysis tests, all of which had come back clear. Then it was suggested he have a €395 DNA fragmentation test which checks to see if the genetic material within the sperm is abnormal, something that may result in male subfertility and IVF failure. When the results came back two weeks later they changed everything. “The normal reading for the DNA fragmentation index is 15; mine was 49. That obviously was really bad. It meant … [Read more...] about ‘I do believe I’ll be a dad some day’

Whether at home or abroad, you may not notice the sun's harmful effects until it is too late. But how do we know when we’re sunburnt? And if we do overindulge on heat rays, what is the best course of action? Here's what you need to know about treating and preventing sunburn. What should you do after you get sunburn? First of all, it may sound obvious but you should get out of the sun. Pharmacist Raj Aggarwal says if you do develop sunburn then you need to cover the area quickly to prevent further damage to your skin. "The next stage is to reduce the heat in the skin and this can best be achieved by taking a cool shower or by soaking a towel in cold water and using this as a compress. Make sure you have removed any salt off the skin as this will irritate sunburn." He added: "I would then recommend the liberal and regular application of an after-sun product.
