Health Risks of Tanning Salons

Do You Go to Tanning Salons?

We all know tanning is bad, but that doesn't stop many Americans from soaking up the sun. A new survey from the Centers for Disease Control shows that a high number of people either visit a tanning salon regularly or have experienced a sunburn within the past year.

The study found that one-third of white women between 18 and 21 years old said they tanned at least once in the last year, on an average of 28 times during the past 12 months. And even if they're not seeking out UV rays indoors, many Americans aren't adequately protecting themselves from the sun; the report also said that half of adults under 30 said they got at least one sunburn within the past year, meaning that many people take a more casual approach to protecting themselves from the sun.

Getting enough vitamin D is important, of course, but so is protecting yourself from the harmful rays, no matter if you're on the beach or on your lunch break. Tell us, are you a tanner?
