Myth Busters: UV Light from Tanning Booths is Safer Than the Sun

Did you know that on an average day in the U.S., more than 1 million people visit tanning salons? Some mistakenly believe it’s a safe alternative to basking in the sun, but the truth is, just because you don’t get burned doesn’t mean you’re safe. In fact, it might even be worse … studies have found a 75 percent increase in the risk of melanoma in those who have been exposed to UV radiation from indoor tanning.  Fortunately, skin cancer is becoming a top public health concern and the powers that be are even considering outlawing UV indoor tanning for those under 18. Play it safe and get your faux glow from a sunless tanner.
