Transcript of Tanning

What Tanning Does To You How tanning beds are different from sunlight So why do people go tanning? Tanning increases your risks of skin cancer. From tanning, you can get melanoma. Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer.(Gutfeld). Also, tanning wrinkles your skin way before it usually should. Your body's ability to fight infections is lowered.(Hoffman). After knowing just this, why would you want to put yourself at risk? Tanning beds give of 4-10 times more harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays than natural sunlight.(Gutfeld). Fake

-Olympic Alpine Skier Julia Mancuso She is worried about the sun's harmful rays. If tanning beds are 4-10 times worse, why would anyone want to use them? I've stayed out too long in the sun plenty of times. I usually wake up the next day burned and in pain. If tanning beds are even more harmful to us, imagine what would happen if you accidentally stayed in one too long. Believe me, the outcome would not be something pretty. There's no point to even risk staying in too long with the effects tanning has on our bodies. My Mistake
