Solariums ‘double melanoma cancer risk’

Solariums double melanoma cancer risk: “‘Solariums emit stronger UVB rays, stronger than the outdoor sun … it’s very dangerous, it’s very high levels of radiation that we shouldn’t be exposed to,’ she said.”

A warning we all need to heed because it certainly seems to increase the chances of younger people getting melanoma. The article provides some pretty convincing information . The most important point it makes, which is why people may continue with putting themselves at risk, is people misunderstand what melanoma is and what it can actually do. it is not just a surface cancer which can be cut out. Tracey Eather, the mother of the girl who died so young and so bravely, is going to start a melanoma awareness campaign. She shouldn’t have to lose a daughter to be that aware but we need to be grateful she cares enough about others to get the facts out to us.
