Why you should TAN!

Why You Should Tan - The Benefits of Visiting a Tanning Salon
Everyone knows a tan looks fantastic, and projects a healthy and attractive skin complexion, but few realize the great many number of benefits that tanning can bring you. Looking good, and feeling good, has now been scientifically proven. Research shows that tanning stimulates the release of beta-endorphins, our body's "feel-good" hormones. This translates to positive psychological effects and well-being, as well as that great sense of elation that comes from an awesome tan.

Let the Teens TAn!

In an editorial published on Huffington Post Canada yesterday, Canadian Constitution Foundation Litigation Director Karen Selick presents a strong case in opposition of teen tan bans. She argues that the scientific evidence used to attack tanning does not warrant a ban and that the benefits of tanning are being ignored.“Science makes continual discoveries and advances that make our previous ‘knowledge’ look like folly,” Selick writes. “All too often, we have allowed governments to make health decisions for us that have turned out to be dead wrong.

Tans are Nature's Sunblock

Derm: Tans are Nature’s SunblockMonday, November 5th, 2012British dermatology leader Dr. Sam Shuster says that a suntan is not damage — it is nature’s intended design and that anyone who thinks otherwise should “tell that to Darwin.” Shuster’s comments on suntans are published as a portion of the book “Panic Nation: Unpicking the Myths We’re Told About Food and Health” available on is an excerpt about sunscreens, UV exposure and base tans:What then should we do about UV exposure and sunscreens?

Tanning Study

Women who use sunbeds more than once a month for several decades had a 37 percent lower risk of contracting breast cancer, according to a new prospective study of nearly 50,000 Swedish women followed for 15 years — a strong addition to data suggesting that the benefits of regular UV exposure from any source outweigh the manageable risks of overexposure.
Researchers at the University of Oxford in England, the University of Oslo in Norway, The Karolinska Institute in Sweden and the Harvard School of Public Health in the United States published the study in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention on-line this week.

“Tanning Beds: What Do The Numbers Really Mean” by Dr. Ivan Oransky

Write your post here.“Less than three-tenths of 1 percent who tanned frequently developed melanoma while less than two-tenths of 1 percent who didn’t tan developed melanoma.” — from the article, “Tanning Beds: What Do The Numbers Really Mean” by Dr. Ivan Oransky, editor of Reuters Health. Oransky pointed out that the data dermatologists say is evidence that tanning increases melanoma risk doesn’t really show much of an increase — one more case per thousand subjects.
That’s not all. What Oransky didn’t know is that if you take sunbed users who use home tanning equipment or who have skin type I — who sometimes tan in home units or in other parts of the world — out of the data set there isn’t any difference in risk.

Understanding the base tan!

.One thing that critics of the indoor tanning industry either don’t understand or refused to admit is the reality that base tans acquired in a non-burning fashion at a professional tanning facility help to prevent sunburn.
It’s surprising. That is a fundamental cornerstone of the indoor tanning industry. And yet, after all these years, they refuse to acknowledge it. “Tans acquired at indoor tanning parlors have been studied and have a very poor ability to prevent sunburning,” the Skin Cancer Foundation claims on its web site.
