Despite Ads, Study Says No Safe Suntan

Posted:

A series of papers published Thursday suggest there is no such thing as a safe suntan.  Experts in Boston found that tanning causes DNA damage in the skin, which is also the trigger for skin cancer.

Experts say they think people under the age of 18 should not be allowed to use tanning beds, and they are trying to fight any publicity claims that say tanning bed use is safe.
