In conclusion tanning may be very popular and fashionable, but it poses numerous internal threats and external health threats. With the information about the threats, we need to put a stop to tanning and preserve our natural beauty. External threats such as malignant melanoma and other types of skin cancers, wrinkles, sunburn, and skin aging. These effects are very dangerous on the skin and can be avoided if the effects are known before the damage is already done. The internal health problems ruin the immune system, making it harder to fight skin cancer and other diseases.
Perceived severity is measured with three items, each having its own 6 point Likert scale. They measured risk for skin cancer based on skin type and natural skin color.

Tanning beds should be called coffins. Tanning beds emit more UVA rays and the longer UVA rays penetrate the skin deeper. They also break down collage and elastic tissue and this causes rapid aging of the skin. You may think you look good when you are tan but you certainly won’t when you skin become very wriggled and saggy. The shorter UVB rays cannot reach this deep but they can cause mutation in DNA of skin cells in the higher
Although it may seem that it is common knowledge that UV tanning beds are harmful to the human body, 7.8 million adult women and 1.9 million adult men in the United States still tan indoors. Thirty-five percent of American adults, 59 percent of college students, and 17 percent of teens have reported using a tanning bed in their lifetime. In Oregon, according to the FDA all sunlamp products must have a warning label, an accurate timer, an emergency stop control, and include an exposure schedule and protective goggles, but it should not stop there. There needs to be a heavier tax imposed on indoor tanning customers. Currently, there is a 10% tax that indoor tanners must pay.
Squamous Cell Carcinomas: Squamous Cell Carcinoma is also found on the body that receives a lot of sun exposure. They, along with Basal Cell Carcinomas, are usually found on the facial region and the hands and may look like a sore that will not heal. Unlike Basal Cell Carcinoma, this type of skin cancer can spread to your lymph nodes. 3. Melanoma: This type of skin cancer shows up in the pigment of the skin.
UV radiation is a form of energy from natural and artificial sunlight. Excess amounts can cause damage to DNA in the skin. Although some argue tanning is good for you because it helps form a “base tan” and the UV exposure time is controlled. The truth is, each time you lay in a tanning bed, it increases the risk of developing skin cancer

On an average day there are about a million people who go tanning on a regular basis, and of those million people, most are younger, between the ages of sixteen and twenty-nine (Hochman). People who use tanning beds before age of thirty-five have a seventy-five percent increased risk of developing melanoma (Fellingham). There are approximately 65,000 new cases nationwide of melanoma and about 9,000 deaths each year from the most preventable disease (Salsberg). Researchers said that there is a death every hour because of melanoma
Melanism can also occur pathologically, as in a malignant melanoma, a cancerous tumour composed of melanin-pigment cells. The advantages of melanic pigmentation: - It is a barrier against the effects of the ultraviolet rays of sunlight. For example the human epidermis undergoes gradual tanning as a result of an increase in melanin. - It is a mechanism for the absorption of heat from sunlight, a function that is especially important for cold blooded animals.
Introduction As we already know UV (aka sunlight and artificial UV lighting) can cause forms of skin cancers. It seems to be common sense now days but we really don’t know how or why specifically and we also don’t really know what preventative measures actually work. As we grow up every day we expose ourselves to sunlight but unless we are going out to the beach or pool, we don’t take preventative measures to keep our skin safe from radiation and some are even attempting to do the complete opposite for beautification.
