Over the course of two decades, a group of scientists at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute conducted a fascinating study. For 20 years, they intensively examined the possibilities of how wearing sunscreen could actually be causing damage to people’s skin over long periods of time. And the results proved to be eye-opening.

The study originated in the early 1990s, when a doctor named Pelle Lindqvist initiated the pioneering study, leading a team made-up of six scientific experts. Together, they recorded some vital information over a two-year period, as the group interviewed nearly 30,000 Swedish women aged between 25 and 64. However, the team’s hard work didn’t end there, though.
