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.

Study Confirms ‘D’ Anti-Cancer RoleMonday

Study Confirms ‘D’ Anti-Cancer RoleMonday, November 26th, 2012A Canadian study is the latest to identify a mechanism by which vitamin D plays a role in cancer risk reduction.“Now, a team of McGill University researchers led by professors John White and David Goltzman has discovered a molecular basis for the potential cancer preventive effects of Vitamin D. The study suggests that the Vitamin D receptor is a ‘master regulator’ in a network implicated in cancer cell growth,” The Ottawa Citizen reported this week. “The team found that Vitamin D slows the progression of cells from precancerous to malignant states, said White, a researcher at the department of physiology at McGill whose laboratory has been studying the anti-cancer actions of Vitamin D for more than a decade. In 2001, White’s lab showed that Vitamin D curbs malignant cells, including those involved in breast and prostate cancers.”The Citizen story asked White about the findings.“We showed that if you put Vitamin D on certain cancer cells, they would stop proliferating, they would stop going through the process of cell division, or they would do it much more slowly,” said White in the story.According to the Citizen article, the current study, published in this month’s edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, provides a piece of the puzzle on how the active form of Vitamin D does what it does, White explained.

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.

Vitamin D

The independent Vitamin D Council suggests that people should use a sunbed in the winter — being careful to avoid a sunburn — as one of the primary ways to make sufficient vitamin D.
Dr. John Cannell, founder of The Vitamin D Council, lists three ways for adults to ensure adequate levels of vitamin D on the Council’s web site.
  1. Regularly receive midday sun exposure in the late spring, summer, and early fall, exposing as much of the skin as possible for 20–30 minutes (being careful to never burn). The Council points out that those with dark skin will need longer exposure time — up to six times longer.
