Tanning Bedlam

Although the American Cancer Society and the American Academy of Dermatology strongly warn against using tanning beds, no website dedicated to countering the use and promotion of tanning beds exists. Accordingly, this website TANNING BEDLAM will attempt to expose and debunk misleading claims by the tanning bed industry. Ultraviolet-emitting tanning devices are classified by the International Agency for Cancer Research as a Group 1 agent that can cause cancer in humans. Other Group 1 carcinogens include tobacco smoke, smokeless tobacco, asbestos, plutonium, and radon.
