Protecting your skin is in.
Tanning is out.
And the bed is dead.
Cancer isn’t something you want to get. But more and more young people are facing one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer – melanoma. It is the most common cancer of young women and the second most common cancer in high school students. And it’s preventable.
Indoor tanning remains popular, even though it is strongly linked to an alarming increase in melanomas. For patients under age 30, indoor tanning is the cause of 76 percent of this most dangerous skin cancer. The unnaturally high ultraviolent radiation in tanning beds also causes other long-term skin damage.
Help us get the word out. Take the pledge to not tan indoors.
