What could be causing this? By:Sukaina Hussain&Autumn Boston
Why we are Against Tanning Beds
Over 73,870 people are diagnosed with melanoma every year. That's about the population of two towns! Melanoma is a deadly form of skin cancer. It will kill about 10,000 people every year. Tanning Beds are a main cause of this. People who are exposed to the indoor U.V light have a 59% increased chance of getting Melanoma.People who use tanning beds before age 30 are 75% more likely to develop melanoma.Because of this,tanning beds should be banned.
Tanning beds create U.V light,that can penetrate the skin.
This is Melanoma on someone's skin. Nasty right?
While going to a tanning bed, this is pretty much what you're doing.
U.V rays penetrating your skin^^^^^
Teens and how they're affected
Teenagers think going in indoor tanning beds will make them tanner,and more beautiful. This is a lie. After continuous use, teens can start looking 20 years older than they are. This is impacting others because you see, people go to tanning salons to have"beautiful skin",but little do they know that their skin is in danger.The U.V lighting in the bed, can make civilians more vulnerable to outdoor light. Many risks include
- Skin Cancer
- Premature Aging
- Possible Surgery
Tanning Beds can cause Pre-Mature Aging/wrinkles^^^^^^
