Tanning Bed Addiction?

Despite the warnings about health dangers attached to tanning some people still can't seem to stay away. Now researchers believe tanning may be an addiction.

A recent study looking at college co-eds found that some people may actually be addicted to UV light. One of the reasons for this addiction could be due to the fact that UV light causes endorphins high. Researchers say those who visit indoor tanning salons are more likely to be addicted.
