Do you GTL? You know, Gym-Tan-Laundry? Well if you do you should stop the middle part! A new study by the Mayo Clinic shows skin cancer among young people is dramatically on the rise.
The tanning trend took off years back when Hollywood beauties started sporting the bronzed look on the red carpet and at award shows. Tanning salons popped up everywhere and teens everywhere flocked to the booths in an effort to emulate their favorite starlets. Popular shows like Jersey shore, Real Housewives and Jerseylicious all bring attention to the tanning trend.
Tanning booths can cause cancer similar to or even worse than the actual sun. Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, has increased 8-fold for women ages 18 to 29 in the past couple of years. In 2009, tanning beds were declared a carcinogen by the International Agency of Research on Cancer and are now considered to be as dangerous as cigarettes.
