Tanning is not safe

Skin cancers are the most common type of cancer. There are two main types of skin cancer: non-melanoma and melanoma. Another skin condition, called actinic keratosis, can result from ultraviolet (UV) damage to the skin and has the risk of progressing to skin cancer if not treated.

Probably like a lot of people, I don't really think about the risks and most of us even think we look better with a little darker skin tones. But tanning is not safe, it causes skin damage and can promote the development of skin cancer. Two members of my family had skin cancer.
