On Tanning Beds

Following yesterday's post, people in the city might find it hard to go out in the sun for the production of vitamin D which could help in the production in Calcium for our body, and that's when... Walah! We've got smart people inventing the tanning beds! Easy, convenient, anytime we want!

But guess what, here's what I came across on the net.

UV radiation from tanning beds

In July 2009, the IARC released a report that categorized tanning beds as “carcinogenic to humans.” The agency, which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), previously classified tanning beds as “probably carcinogenic.” The change comes after an analysis of more than 20 epidemiological studies indicating that people who begin using tanning devices before age 30 are 75% more likely to develop melanoma.


And now, if you don't know what is melanoma, it's a form of skin cancer.
