 UNITED STATES - The FDA is warning companies against trying to sell a so-called "sunscreen pill."

According to the FDA, the companies claim their products protect against sun damage - claims the FDA says are inaccurate; and illegal.

Experts say pills and supplements cannot replace sunscreen, and recommend sunblock with at least SPF 30.
