Chemicals in Blood – level 1

01-11-2022 15:00

People use sunscreens to protect their skin from the sun. There is a new study. It says that some chemicals in sunscreens get into people’s blood.

Scientists test four different sunscreens and six chemicals. They find that all six chemicals get into the body. They do not know what these chemicals do to people. It is worrying. Scientists must do more research to understand how chemicals get into the body.

Some chemicals in sunscreens can be dangerous. However, scientists say that the health benefits of sunscreens are bigger than the risks.

Officials must control sunscreens more and check the chemicals in them.

Difficult words: sunscreen (a cream that stops the sun from burning the skin), protect (to keep safe), chemical (a thing that scientists work with that people use to make other things).
