Yet Another Reason To Avoid Tanning Beds…
You already know indoor tanning puts you at risk for developing leathery skin, wrinkles, and scary health problems like melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. But new research from the Yale School of Public Health found that fake baking increases your odds of developing another form of skin cancer.
Researchers discovered that young people who used indoor tanning beds had a 69 percent greater chance of contracting early-onset basal cell carcinoma than non-tanners. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) shows up via open sores, red patches, pimple-like growths, and scars, according to the American Academy of Dermatologists. It can be disfiguring and, if it isn't caught in time, can even kill you.
Visiting a tanning bed just once is rolling the dice, but scientists found that the risks of developing BCC increased the more people tanned. This new research comes on the heels of an earlier University of Minnesota study that found that people who used tanning beds were 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma. So, really—any way you look at it, tanning is bad news.
