A large amount of UV radiation can lead to skin cancer and premature aging.

Tanning beds and booths have come with health warnings for as long as I can remember.

In 2009, as a response to data highlighting the risks associated with tanning bed, the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified ultraviolet light emitted from tanning beds as carcinogenic, and placed artificial sources of ultraviolet radiation alongside tobacco and asbestos in the highest category of carcinogen (El Ghissassi et al., 2009). The Society of Behavioral Medicine issued a position statement calling for a ban on tanning bed in minors in 2014, and the American Academies of Dermatology and Pediatrics also released reports in support of a total ban on tanning bed in individuals under the age of 18 (Pagoto et al., 2014).

According to SkinCancer, “people who use a tanning bed before the age of 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75%.”

But no matter how many times we warn young girls to avoid these danger zones, it seems like the short term benefit of getting that beautiful glow outweighs the long term reality of developing a serious skin condition.  Three years ago, Tawny Dzierzek was 27 years old when she shared a selfie of her tanning scars on social media.

“If anyone needs a little motivation to not lay in the tanning bed and sun here ya go! This is what skin cancer treatment can look like … Learn from other people’s mistakes. Don’t let tanning prevent you from seeing your children grow up,” she wrote in her Facebook post’s caption.

After years of using tanning bed, Mallory Lubbock confessed she did see graphic images like Tawny’s on the internet, but thought, “Oh, that’ll never happen to me.” But it did, and now she has a powerful message for everyone who doesn’t think twice before they get that fake glow:

 

“Thank you for this message. Please share with those in government as well. We finally have a law that kids have to be 18 but parents can still give permission. I can’t believe sunbeds are still legal. We need to change our attitudes about our looks too, a tan is a sign of damage not of health,” wrote one Facebook user.

 

“I am so sorry you have to go thru this. But I must commend your courage, strength and generosity. You’re sharing is such a service! Thank you! Be blessed with good health, happiness and peace!” wrote another.

PLEASE stay out of those tanning beds and wear massive SPF on your skin. Looking tan is just not worth it!

Judy went to get a scab checked out in 1995 and was told it was skin cancer – specifically basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of non melanoma skin cancer, which is caused by exposure to the sun and sunbeds.

While some people are sympathetic as to what happened to Mallory and have congratulated her for raising awareness, others criticized the young woman for her past mistakes.

 

“People need to stop thinking they don’t look good enough. My skin is white, or I don’t like my natural hair color. A friend of my daughters has a little girl, shes beautiful, a blond. Kid wants to die her hair pink, Mom’s going to do it.

 

Laboratory studies have also shown graviola to be effective against some types of cancer cells.

So please, don’t do it!

For a child, the decision is up to you the adult. If this is allowed your teaching your child she does not look good enough. How do they know years down the line this stuff won’t affect these kids,” wrote one user.
