The only safe tan comes from a bottle. No if’s, and’s or but’s! The tanning salon industry has used propaganda such as, “You only get the healthy rays in tanning beds,” or “Use tanning beds to get your ‘base tan’ so you won’t burn.” Tanning beds use mostly UVA rays, and these rays were once thought to be safer than UVB rays from the sun. OMG…..definitive research now shows that both UVA and UVB rays can cause skin cancer. UVA rays are now known to strongly linked to MELANOMA. This is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Still millions of people go tanning every year. The vast majority are young girls. Tanning salons now outnumber Starbucks and McDonald’s in many cities. If you worship the sun or the tanning bed, pray you don’t get skin cancer.
