    A  new American Academy of Dermatology survey revealed that 71% of 18 to 34 year old women know that there is no such thing as a healthy tan, and 66% know that getting a bade tan is not a healthy way to protect themselves from the sun's harmful UV rays. The survey also indicates 98% know that skin cancer can be deadly. 

    "Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is the second most common cancer in young women, and we believe this may be due in part to their tanning habits. It is alarming that young women are continuing to tan even though they're aware of the danger."

    "Exposure to UV radiation, whether it's from the sun or an indoor tanning device, is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer. Women need to take their knowledge and turn it into action by protecting themselves from the sun and staying out of tanning beds."
