Local Dermatologist Seconds Tanning Bed Study
It might look like the healthy glow of summer. But a tan from a tanning bed might be more like the deadly gloom of cancer. That's essentially the results of a new study that finds the risk of melanoma skin cancer 74 percent higher among those who do indoor tanning. But don't expect the tanning to stop, says Gundersen Lutheran dermatologist, Karl Noll. He says it's really hard for young people to believe tanning is dangerous when it's such a delayed effect. Sound familiar? Does to the World Health Organization. WHO already considers tanning beds to be the same kind of cancer risk as tobacco.
