Dermatologist Dr. Carl Soderstromdid a live interview during our 5pm newscast and mentioned the American Academy of Dermatology says "indoor tanning is out." The rays your teenagers get when they tan are just as likely to cause cancer as the sun. I know I thought it was so cool to have a bronze tan all summer. I even worked as a lifeguard. I should really check my moles.
Anyway, here's a story on ABC with all the details on the dangers of tanning beds.
I hope you had a great Memorial Day and remembered to wear sunscreen. I only remembered to put it on one of my kids. Bad mom.
