Use of sunbed is harmful

People use sunbeds to have a better look. The British Medical Association (BMA) is advising people not to use sunbeds because of potential health risks. While the government does not recommend the use of sunbeds, training or regulation exists for their use. A report from WHO calls for an urgent need to reduce the health and environmental impact of increased ultra-violet exposure. A tan, even without burning, always means that the skin has been damaged.// A suntan is not nature's own sunscreen, it does not protect you from ultra-violet radiation. There are some harmful effects like skin cancer particularly in young people, premature ageing, including leathery, wrinkled and sagging skin, eye damage, suppression of the immune system. The eyes are very prone to damage from tanning equipment.

Sunbeds work by exposing the skin to ultra-violet radiation. Even though ultra-violet radiation is used to treat psoriasis and eczema, they are done under strict medical supervision. People who have very fair skin, People who burn easily or tan poorly or People who have had skin cancer should never use sunbeds. Sunbeds are linked to two types of skin cancer, called basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. However the Sunbed Association said they are providing a controlled environment for tanning and a strict code of practice was in operation.
