Sunscreen tablet in 5 years defuses Chiappalone’s prophecy of alarming increase in skin cancer rate

In his essay “Review of Prophecies“, Chiappalone notes that “skin cancer is increasing at an alarming rate”.  Yet a recent article in the Guardian, “Sunscreen pill could be available within five years, scientists say” (August 2011), suggests that a tablet could prevent sunburn in humans, providing protection against harmful UV rays in a way similar to that used by corals.  This would presumably ultimately result in a major decrease in skin cancer rate.
