According to the April 2008 issue of Health magazine, researchers at the University of Maryland have found that mice treated with topical forms of two antioxidants found in bran and legumes like peanuts and peas resulted in a lower probability that the mice would develop tumors after being exposed to UV rays.  However, eating the bran and legumes is unlikely to have the protective post-UV effects.

As Dr. Abulkalam M. Shamsuddin, M.D., tells Health, “Topical forms of the antioxidants may soon be added to sunscreen.”

Exciting news indeed! :-)
