Severe Danger from Tanning Salons

Tanning-SalonsProfessionals since long are recommending people to lower the use of tanning beds because according to them, the ultraviolet radiation used by these beds could harm people and their skin. It is half true, and the complete one is harsh than this.

Professionals conducted a study and found that the harm of ultraviolet radiation caused by tanning beds is more dangerous than actually thought, since they not only damage surface of the skin, but also severely affect underneath the outer layers of skin.

The findings of the study are published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. The report has clearly mentioned that UVA rays can cause serious risk of skin cancer.

It has showed that the rays damage areas beneath the surface of the skin where division of cells take place to create some new layers, which further damages the cells' DNA and raises the risk of skin cancer in the body.

Prof. Antony Young, one of the researchers from King's College London, said: “In the past UVA has been written off as not very serious to the skin. Damage to the upper layers is not so important because those layers are in the process of dying, whereas damage to a dividing cell is more worrying”.
