Am I Going To Die From Tanning Beds?!?

A tan, whether you get it on the beach, in a bed, or through incidental exposure, tans are caused by harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning lamps, and if you have one, you’ve sustained skin cell damage. No matter what you may hear at tanning salons, the cumulative damage caused by UV radiation can lead to premature skin aging (wrinkles, lax skin, brown spots, and more), as well as skin cancer. In fact, people who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent. For the facts about the dangers of tanning and how to get a bronzed glow without risking your health, watch this episode of Am I Going To Die, Dr. Gallups and Melissa Moritz, take a look at the common myths associated with the use of tanning beds and problems that can follow.

What you will learn in this episode:

  1. What is skin cancer?
  2. Can you get melanoma from tanning beds?
  3. Is skin cancer serious or deadly?
  4. What makes a tanning bed bad for you?
  5. What are the alternatives?
  6. And SO MUCH MORE!
