24 April 2009 - 05:28 PMSpektre- Although i completely agree with what you said, about girls having low self-esteem, Theres ALOT of factors there. One of the big ones, MEN. Girls are taught at a young age that guys like thin, tan, blonde, big chested girls. I know this isnt always true, but society teaches girls that in order to be happy, you have to be pretty. What girl DOESNT want a boyfriend? Thats why you see girls in jr. high dressing the way they do.
Tanning beds can have alot of benefit, simply because the light emitted is about 40% less UVB rays than what the sun produces, UVB is what causes cancer. Tanning inside allows you to control how much UVB and UVA rays (produces Vitamin D) you put into your skin. Seeing how beds are designed with filters people generally tan more then they burn. Tanning beds help with other things too. I have a cousin with a skin condition, the doctor prescribed him 5 mins in the tanning beds every few days. The same thing goes with SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder. Ever wonder why you are slightly less happy in the winter? Its not just because its cold. Its the amount of sunlight you get. Alot of people that suffer from winter based SAD visit tanning beds for treatment.
When the problem arises is when people go TOO much. People especially younger women are ADDICTED to tanning.
Women who use tanning beds more than once a month are 55 percent more likely to develop malignant melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.
Trent- She really should avoid tanning beds unless shes doing it in moderation. If she wants a good tan she would do best to tan in short five minute increments and allow several weeks to a month to achieve her goal.Instead of going to a tanning salon, try tanning sprays. Actually some salons now provide only tanning spray services.
Theres a greater risk for people with fair skin; blonde, red, or light hair; and blue, green, or gray eyes. Artificial tanning can also be more dangerous for those who burn easily, or have a family member who has had skin cancer.
Be sure to keep a good eye out for any abnormalities (like bumps or sores that don't heal) or moles that have changed size, color or shape. Be sure to check all areas. women have a higher risk of contracting skin cancer on their legs, and men have a higher risk of getting it on their backs.If caught early skin cancer is now almost 100 percent curable.
Here in Michigan you have to be 18 to tan without a parents permission, because of the health issues. and a parent/guardian must accompany children under the age of 14.
You can find the state laws for tanning, and the introduced legislation at this link..
Aight thanks a bunch Robin. I was really starting to get worried about it so this helped tht go away. I'll make sure to try and spot any weird bumps (on the parts of her im allowed to look at without getting a slap to the face )
23 April 2009 - 11:38 PMSecond hand UVB....... Good one. "Dude, could you not tan around me? I'm allergic to UVB."
And I also agree with your opinion....
Hey, that crap kills, and I don't want it around me...
*Funny side story*
Best friend was having a birthday party and two of his cousins, as well as one of their friends, were there. Well, tanning was brought up and one of my friends who all too often speaks before he thinks says something along the lines of No straight man would ever tan. Just then the friend who came with the cousins admits that he tans every now and then... Talk about foot in mouth.
hahahaha u can call that a fail lol
