Chapter 1 Consumers Rule: Mexoryl – L’Oreal: Skin Cancer
When did the welfare of consumers become an issue?
List 3 government agencies have been created to oversee consumer-related activities?

Safety Commission trying to protect us from?

List 6 potential health risks with imported drugs
that are mentioned near the bottom of the article
“Imported Drugs Raise Safety Concerns” Go to
What is Mexoryl and what are the alleged
benefits of the ingredient? What is the difference
between UVA and UVB rays? If such a product
is available in other first world countries, discuss

Until summer 2006 it was illegal for people to obtain Mexoryl based products in the United
States. Was it therefore also unethical to buy such products on the internet? Is it acceptable
to buy FDA banned products in Canada and bring them back to the US? Is it any different
than buying marijuana in Amsterdam (where it is legal) and consuming it in the US?
