    LONDON - International cancer experts have moved tanning beds and other sources of ultraviolet radiation into the top cancer risk category, deeming them as deadly as arsenic and mustard gas.
    For years, scientists have described tanning beds and ultraviolet radiation as "probable carcinogens."
    A new analysis of about 20 studies concludes the risk of skin cancer jumps by 75 percent when people start using tanning beds before age 30. Experts also found that all types of ultraviolet radiation caused worrying mutations in mice, proof the radiation is carcinogenic. Previously, only one type of ultraviolet radiation was thought to be lethal.

    I remember that 'stuff' that we used to get in the tube {circa early 70's} it would tint your skin...unfortunately it would gradually turn orange and under fluorescent lights you would look like an 'REAL ORANGE'...most embarrassing. And those tell-tale streaks that you legs imprints would leave on any seats/chairs/clothing...well it really never came out especially if you wore a white tennis outfit...horrible stuff!!!

    But now they are talking about putting an age restriction on those tanning beds...the couple of beauty salons down town have had to limit the amount of sessions for girls under sixteen to twice a week. Gonna hurt those 'Lilly white girls' that want that deep even tan before prom!

    Can't understand why no one saw this coming. Is it really worth it to compromise your health?
