Tanning Alert June 1, 2010

Filed under: Hair/Beauty — switchgirls @ 2:00 pm

Love having that year-round golden glow?  Frequent the tanning bed twice a week?  Or more?  If you’re using tanning beds regularly, you need to be aware of the potential risks.  This isn’t meant to scare you, but it just might.  Remember, your body is given to you by God and is His dwelling place.  Make sure you know all the info so you can take the best care of it!

Tanning Beds Tied To Cancer
(from the Commercial Appeal, 05/30/10)

People who use tanning beds frequently have up to three times the risk of developing the deadliest form of skin cancer–no matter how old they are when they start–according to a study by researchers at the University of Minnesota.

The study, based on the experience of more than 2000 Minnesotans, is the most definitive link yet between exposure to artificial ultraviolet light and melanoma, experts say, and could influence the Food and Drug Administration in a pending decision on whether to tighten the regulation of tanning salons.

The indoor tanning industry disagreed with the findings.

What do you think?
