It’s natural to want to soak up the rays and get the darkest tan possible. Yet according to the Canadian Cancer Society, melanoma skin cancer is one of the fastest rising cancers in the country… and one of the most preventable.
Over the past 40 years, melanoma rates have increased in young woman nearly 800%!!!!!!!!!! Why young woman….you guessed it, tanning beds! We are finally catching up with the times and Alberta has made it illegal to use tanning beds if you are under 18 years old. But pick up any magazine and you will find a celebrity or a model looking beautiful sporting a dark, bronze glow making it difficult to not want to get some color.
