Indoor Tanning Increases Melanoma Risk by 75%

Skin cancer takes the lives of our young and our old, and the risk is not always from being outside in the sun. According the the American Academy of Dermatology, indoor tanning increases the risk of melanoma by 75%.
What is even more shocking is it is being reported that melanoma is the most common form of cancer for our children in the 25 - 29 age group; and the second most common form of cancer for our children in the 15 to 29 year age group. Something to think about.
