The Day That Changed My Life - The Truth of Tanning

The truth is that tanning can cause melanoma (skin cancer) and for those who are thirty and under increase their risk of skin cancer by 75%. Although tanning salons disagree because they feel it is a controlled environment where you can minimize the amount of time spent tanning, tanning beds have about 99% Ultraviolet Radiation which research experts have found is in no way safe at any level. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) warns consumers of tanning salons that exposure to UV Radiation damages the cells in the epidermis.

Listen to the journeys of those who were diagnosed with melanoma followed by an important update from Dermatologist - Dr. Neal Schultz.
