Default Study: Tanning beds and UV radiation as deadly as arsenic, mustard gas, experts say

LONDON - International cancer experts have moved tanning beds and other sources of ultraviolet radiation into the top cancer risk category, deeming them as deadly as arsenic and mustard gas. For years, scientists have described tanning beds and ultraviolet radiation as "probable carcinogens."

I thought the mention of being a "Chimney Sweep" as being a Cancer risk interesting.

I used to be one, but luckily I got out of it. Two strikes against me already.

These tanning beds have been around for more than 2 decades. It sure took them a long time to let people know that the risk is higher than people already suspected.

There was also something mentioned about cancer risks being even higher in girls who start using tanning bed as young teens. I'll have to find the article...hopefully.
