Besides the obvious major issue of getting skin cancer or increasing your likely hood of getting it, tanning beds can also put you at risk for staph infections!! Either way, tanning is not a good idea because it can lead to melanoma, staph infections, and skin damage later in life. If you want to tan, go outside when it's sunny but be sure to use sunscreen!

Yeah; tanning in the tanning beds before age 21 can increase your risk of skin cancer by 20% every time you go. My friend is only 12 and she tans in the tanning bed. I told her it's very harmful to her skin, but.... well, I don't know what she did.

Here is a good cause my friends and I are involved in, it's a page on Facebook called "Hold A Child's Hand". Here's what it's about:
There were many goals we wanted to accomplish with our project. One of our goals was to raise awareness of the importance of the preservative free drug called, Methotrexate. (a drug that helps children fighting cancer) This medication has been in short supply for some time, and we decided that we would contact the congressmen of all 50 states, as well as President Obama, to inform them of the issue. Another goal was to help families who are affected by childhood cancer. To do this, we planned many events to raise money for cancer research and financial assistance for families. Our goal was to raise at least $1000 for a foundation called “Alex’s Lemonade Stand” which focuses on finding a cure for childhood cancer, and providing funds to help families as their child endures treatment. Another goal was to raise $150 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Sami_McDoodle I really don't think that any part of a tanning bed is healthy for you. Maybe tanning naturally in the sun because it helps you soak up vitiman D. But tanning beds are bad news!!
