Tanning beds

Posted:

With cold weather upon us, many people may be tempted to turn to indoor tanning to stay bronzed through the dark winter months.

The FDA is warning consumers though, there is no such thing as a healthy tan.

Ultraviolet light from indoor tanning beds pose serious dangers.  Studies show indoor tanning increases the risk for skin cancer -- especially among those who start at a young age and visit tanning beds often.

An FDA report shows using one-third, or even one-fourth, the UV exposure in tanning beds will give consumers the same cosmetic look they're going for.
