MythBusters episode on tanning

Myth :Tanning beds can cook your insides if you use them too often.

Experts: Heather Joseph-Withman - Folklorist - Tells the myth of a woman getting ready for a big event and believes that she will look much better if she is tan. Irritated by time limitations at tanning salons, she makes appointments at many back-to-back. Now nicely tan, her husband smells something funny. When nothing can make the smell go away, the woman goes to her doctor and finds out that she has cook her insides and has only two weeks to live. Also noted that there have been two Dear Abby columns about this. Plus, tanning magazine, Tanning Trends, had to publish an article stating that this was untrue.

Rick Mattoon-Director American Tanning Institute -He says there is a new version every month and the interest grows from local to national.

Action/Results: Two dead chickens were placed in a tanning booth and subjected to 4 straight sessions, about 48 minutes. Upon examining the chickens, they find the outside is burned but the insides are still nice and rare. It is discovered that tanning bed don’t even use microwaves but light waves to tan. To check another part of the myth, that microwaves cook from the inside out, Jamie puts a roast in a microwave for 20 minutes. When the roast is cut in half, the inside is still cold proving that microwaves cook from the outside. Myth BUSTED!

Re: MythBusters episode on tanning

I do not think that there is enough postive information out there for tanning. I think that this should change.

Re: MythBusters episode on tanning

I don't remember the chickens being burnt tho! I could be wrong, but I was sure that they hadn't "cooked" inside or out. Do you remember Neon?

Re: MythBusters episode on tanning

Thanks. I thought I remembered the chickens being just as raw coming out as when they went in.
