The World Health Organization has determined that UV rays from tanning beds cause cancer.
Melanoma kills one person every 50 minutes. It's the second most common cancer for 15-29 year olds.
Tanning beds put out 3-6 times the amount of radiation given off by the sun.
Getting more sun won't increase your Vitamin D level, but it will increase your risk of skin cancer.
People who use tanning beds once a month before the age of 35 increase their melanoma risk by 75%.
