Pasty Pins or Cancer? Sunbeds Increase Your Risk of Skin Cancer by 50%!
The sun is out and you know that summer is just around the corner! As you get ready to bear your pasty pins for the sun’s rays many of you will be making appointment at your local salons to get on the sunbeds to top up your tan before you bare all!
Catching a bit of the UV rays may seem like an easier alternative to getting a natural tan outdoors but the harsh reality is that it can damage the DNA in our skin cells and cause us cancer. If you don’t believe us then believe the experts:
Cancer Research has said that using the sunbed once or more a month increases your risk of skin cancer by 50%!
It is not often we talk about hard hitting issues such as this, but ask yourself this question…Would you prefer pasty skin over the risk of cancer?
