Higher Risk of Skin Cancer for Those Using Tanning Beds

The golden glow of a tan is something some people can't resist. But new research suggests some methods are more dangerous than others. ABC News reports kids who spend time on tanning beds may be raising their risk of skin cancer. A study found people who developed basal cell carcinoma between the ages of 18 and 25 reported spending more time in indoor tanning salons earlier in their lives. Basal cell carcinoma used to be considered a type that effected only older adults but doctors are reporting a dramatic rise in it among young adults. The study's authors recommend more laws to restrict teens from using tanning beds.
