David McCandless at Information Is Beautiful wanted to answer one simple summer question: just how much sunscreen should a “pale geek who burns” wear? As with many simple questions, the answer was quite complex, but thanks to David’s voracious apetite for information and his equally strong drive for making it readable, we bring you his clarifying “Sunscreen Smokescreen:” an in-depth look (without all the smokey, confusing hype) at how much sunscreen you should be smearing on this summer. Surfs up!

  1. I agree that sunscreen is beneficial and necessary but I think the amount we slather on is contributing somewhat to the rampant Vit D deficiency in this country.
