Charleston Beauty | Sunless Tanning, many equate Charleston Beauty to having a bronzed glow. If are one of the many people who loved the sun kissed look the Hair and Makeup Salon of Lashes and Lace provides safe, easy, and convenient spray tanning.
The risks involved in tanning beds are well documented. Overexposure to ultraviolet radiation is known to cause skin cancer, advance skin aging and wrinkling, mutate DNA, and reduce immune system response. Frequent tanning bed use triples the risk of developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Children and adolescents who use tanning beds are at greater risk because of biological vulnerability to ultraviolet radiation.
In July 2009, the IARC released a report that placed tanning beds in its highest cancer risk category, "carcinogenic to humans." The agency, which is part of the World Health Organization, previously classified tanning beds as "probably carcinogenic." The change comes after an analysis of more than 20 epidemiological studies indicating that people who begin using tanning devices before age 30 are 75% more likely to develop melanoma, the most deadly type of skin cancer.
What is the Youth Skin Cancer Prevention Act
The Youth Skin Cancer Prevention Act is meant to raise the minimum age for indoor tanning from 14 to 18 years. Also, it does not allow for medical prescription or parental permission. House Bill 18 was passed in March 2013 with 94-22 support. However, the industry officials and lobbyists have claimed that there is no proof to demonstrate the connection between skin cancer and ultraviolet radiation.
Dr. Kelly Nelson from the Duke University Melanoma Center countered the lobbyists’ statements by saying that doctors have noticed an increase in melanoma in teens and young women due to the frequent use of tanning beds.
The recent legislation is supported by the Child Fatality Task Force, the American Cancer Society, the North Carolina Dermatology Association, NC Oncology Society, the North Carolina Pediatrics Society and the North Carolina Medical Society.
