Melanoma has been the new topic of concern. I am sure that each and every one of us can think of a person that we know who has been diagnosed with this type of skin cancer.

The stats of melanoma diagnoses have increased by 800 percent in women ages 18-29 years. This statistic seems shockingly unrealistic, but believe it! The rates of melanoma are increasing but why??? We think that tanning beds have a lot to do with this.

Tanning beds have been ranked as a class 1 carcinogen, meaning that that the deadly habit ranks amongst arsenic and cigarette smoking.

By simply tanning ONCE in a tanning bed, your overall risk of developing Melanoma increases by 20%!
