Like I have said before and what we all should keep in mind is that there is no such thing as a “safe tan.” This article really should make everyone think twice about tanning yourself or even letting your teenagers tan.
I would love to know what you think…Would this change your tanning habits or make you think twice?
“The International Agency for Research on Cancer announced Wednesday
that it had elevated sunbeds, used by tens of millions of people for
tanning, to its highest cancer risk category. Classified in 1992 and a “probable” cancer agent, research since then has left no doubt that soaking up UV rays at tanning salons significantly enhances the chances of developing the disease, the World Health Organization (WHO) agency found.
“The use of sunbeds is carcinogenic to humans. It causes melanoma of the
skin, and melanoma of the eye,” said Vincent Cogliano, an IARC researcher
who led the new assessment.”
