Scientific studies have found that if a person burns often, there is an increased risk for melanoma later in life.
I do believe (maybe Don Smith can pipe in) that only applies to skin types 1 and 2A - especially displaced ones like from upper Europe to AU where they tend to burn like a barbie on the grille. When they have moles and a family history of CMM then presto... they get it sooner or later.

BUT... higher skin types living in sunny locals actually have a smaller mortality rate from CMM - due to the overall protective pigmentation from UVR - as I recall from a recent study.

If true.... than even "new" sunscreens absorbing UVA plus UVB are not going to prevent any CMM issues. Or they might make it even worse!!!

Re: A Vote For McCain will end the tanning industry

Ok, here's what we do - we capture him, stick him in a room with Don and Joe Levy for a few hours, and then unanimously elect him as President - of the ITA! It'd be like a reverse Manchurian Candidate sort of thing. Whuddaya think?

Out of 8400 posts, so many of them deserve that award but it pains me to say this, you are right Megatanman.

Re: A Vote For McCain will end the tanning industry

The democrats are turning on the Egg - I love it!

Grand Old Egg Party: No votes this time around lol.

Edit to Eileen: You can never be too pretty to join in a political debate. In fact there is an opening on Fox News right now for a new reporterette. Pays way more than a tanning salon!

Just teasing... don't go "Christa" on me....

Re: A Vote For McCain will end the tanning industry

Hate to say it, but if McCain gets into office an "attack" on the tanning industry will be the least of my worries.

Re: A Vote For McCain will end the tanning industry

Nah. The president telling America to get out of the sun and wear sunscreen.

He's going to EMBRACE the tanning industry for sure!

I can now say with 100% certainty that the majority of the people that post in these forums are mostly brain dead. Just enough to get to the computer and type and that's about it.

The clearly obvious is just too obvious for the redder necks I guess. Maybe all that sun does fry the brain.

I was wrong about Bush tanking the country too.
