New Cancer Warning Over Tanning BedsTopics: Medicine
The Cancer Society says sun beds should never be used as a tanning method because the risk of skin cancer is too great. People wrongly assume sunbeds are a safe alternative to the sun, but its UV radiation is five times stronger. Unfortunately, international research suggests those most likely to use sun beds - young people under 35, are particularly susceptible to harm, with the risk of melanoma increasing 75 percent for this group.
