Aug. 6, 2009 - PRLog -- On July 29th, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), - the cancer division of the World Health Organization - classified tanning beds "carcinogenic to humans." This means that tanning beds that were previously classified as "probably carcinogenic" have jumped to the head of the class.

They are now in GROUP 1, which is the highest cancer risk group. To put this in perspective, other carcinogens listed in this group are plutonium, mustard gas and arsenic. Quite an impressive group!

The Tanning Association advertises that they only using the tanning rays and not the burning rays (UVB). Actually, UVA is just as bad if not worse than UVB. UVB rays stop at the skin surface and cause your skin to change color, while UVA rays penetrate deeper and destroy your DNA.

Also, the high intensity UVA rays found in tanning beds are 10 to 12 times more powerful than the UV rays from the sun. These rays harm your skin by damaging the DNA of the cell and release free radicals, the chemicals that cause cell mutations.

This not only causes skin aging, but also makes you more susceptible to skin cancer. And as if that wasn't enough, ultraviolet light also causes cataracts.

The Only Safe tan is a Spray Tan.  
Sunless spray tans will last between four and ten days. They give you the look of having been in the sun, but don't use ultraviolet rays. This is a great sunless alternative!
