For years and years now, millions of sun worshippers across the country would hit the beaches during summer to work on the perfect, golden tan. However, the advent of indoor tanning salons now allows Americans to sport a sun-kissed look year-round. And as more and more people pursue a perpetual summer-style tan, dermatologists have begun noticing a significant rise in skin cancer incidents, especially among young women.

Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, still makes up just 3 percent of all skin cancers, and results in about 8,000 deaths a year, according to the National Cancer Institute. But three factors have doctors alarmed: The rates of this cancer are rising; it has become the most common cancer for young people; and many of the cases result from the preventable, but addictive, behavior of indoor suntanning.

"In the last few decades, it's certainly been on the rise. And some people think that may be a result of behavior, and UV exposure," said Jennifer Stein, an assistant professor of dermatology at New York University's Langone Medical Center. "This is a very serious cancer, and this is a behavior that's preventable."

I think this article should have stated it's alright to get 10-15 mins of sun a day to obtain your Vitamin D for the day.

Any color is damage to your skin therefore increase your risk so there is no safe amount of tanning.

My nickname could be casper the friendly ghost. I embrace my paleness as I'd rather be pale with less wrinkles, no sunspots and the a reduced risk of skin cancer.

And my nickname could be Snowwoman ) I have very fair skin but embrace it with pride!

Self-tanner is , I think, the most wise solution for those who do not want to look like a snowwoman Cool

I agree with you, I think tan skinned is just a trend.

I found it interesting that tanning raises your endorphins and can be addictive. I have a friend who goes to tanning beds even though she knows it's unhealthy, she can't (won't?) stop. This makes sense as to why.

Thanks for sharing the article.

We all know that baking yourself for hours on the beach, covered in oil, is not recommended anymore. But I think it should be noted that the article above is primarily referring to tanning beds. It is now known that their use can lead to skin cancers and melanomas. Here in Australia, they have been linked to a number of deaths and there is talk about banning them.

On the other side of the coin, there is a rise in Vitamin D deficiency in young people. This has been related to the wearing of sunscreen and sun avoidance. Some sun exposure is recommended for overall health - but tanning beds are definitely to be avoided.

Many people now think all the unsaturated oils in our bodies react by oxidizing when the sun interacts with it. 30, 40 years ago we all ate saturated fats like whole milk, butter, coconut oil,palm, and olive oil, all which are loaded with the much more stable saturated fats. When we were mistakenly told to stop saturated fats that's when heart disease and skin cancer went through the roof. Only one doctor did a inferior study stating fat caused heart disease.

Check out the book Eat Fat Lose Fat.We are being inundated by cheap vegtable oils that were never before eaten in the history of the world. Food corporations make lots of money on these cheap oils which are causing all types of disease and immune disorders.

i guess moderation is key to life. A little sun is good for the skin. But I agree tanning beds do not do good to your body. I don't think tanning is a trend... it's more of a preference in skin color. I just love that bronze sun-kissed look... think brazilian!
