Gisele Bündchen Ticks Off Cancer Experts By Calling Sun Screen "Poison"

Posted on Fri Feb 4, 2011 11:55 AM PDT

bundchenspf230.jpgFor someone who spends a majority of her time frolicking around in bikini for major modeling shoots, we don't quite get where Gisele Bündchen's comments on SPF are coming from.

The beautiful Mrs. Tom Brady, aka the highest paid supermodel in the world, angered cancer experts everywhere when she announced sunscreen is "poison".

Apparently the supermodel (who is perfectly tanned 24/7) refuses to use the product because of all the chemicals they contain to absorb UVA and UVB light.

The former face of advertising campaigns for Nivea Sun products reveals:

    "I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic."

Hmm. We'd think this comment was pretty random, if it hadn't been said at the launch of her own organic skin care line. Will organic SPF lotions be a part of her collection? We're betting yes.

As a compromise, the Brazilian beauty claims she only exposes herself to the sun before 8am, when it is still too weak to do any damage. Does anyone else see a problem with this?

Check out some hot pics of Bündchen modeling Caldezonia Swimwear on the beach (past 8am) after the jump ...



Here's a little background on one of our fave models: Bündchen was one of Victoria's Secret Angels from 2000 until 2007, a period that saw her become the highest-paid model in the world and the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment industry with an estimated $150 million fortune. Members of the fashion industry have argued Bündchen is the only true remaining "supermodel." She is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program.
