Quotes

Sunscreens can be used the next year, but, "if you have a bottle left from last year, you didn't use enough" Martin said
"Sun tanning booths almost certainly increase the risk of skin cancer and melanoma, particularly in young people whose skin structures are still developing. That's why it's so important that a growing number of states have placed much needed restrictions on artificial tanning by minors" he said
"Despite elevated awareness of the dangers of UV radiation, people still choose to ignore the dangers in the pursuit of what they consider to be a 'healthy tan.' This is particularly an issue among young people who tend to ignore health risks in favor of enhancing their social status and popularity. We know that tanning appeals to people who are interested in being included, and this is a primary driver for teens - being part of the 'in' crowd."
...If you are interested in more information on melanoma, go to the NIH website and see the online booklet "What You Need To Know About™ Melanoma and Other Skin Cancers" to learn about melanoma symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and questions to ask your doctor
