The Mayo Clinic has found that over the course of nearly 40 years from 1970 to 2009 a dramatic rise in skin cancer has occurred. To be exact, an eight fold increase in women, and a four fold increase in men!
Most alarming is the frighteningly spiked increase of melanoma found in women in their 20’s and 30’s.
I think for many of us, this is no surprise. There are multiple tanning salons in every city and town. In fact, in some cities,
tanning salons outnumber even the most commonly seen business establishments.
The desire to have a tanned complexion has become a social epidemic.
I have news for you girls; orange is not a good look, and cancer is even worse. Any guy who prefers a fake tan on his partner is either legally blind, extremely sadistic, or entirely brainwashed. Drop him, and find a man that likes you for you.
I have heard many women claim that they just happen to like the way tanning makes them look. According to the study
people who use indoor tanning beds frequently are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma.
Is the orange glow really worth the risk?
It’s time to alter our conceptions of beauty and opt for happy, healthy lives instead of freakish, cancerous lives. That, or just dive in to the melanoma pool and lead a life like this woman with skin like rawhide.
