Forget everything you have heard about sun beds and the sun. Did you know that many independent studies have shown a significant health improvement for someone who uses a sun bed once a week for 5 minutes? Their vitamin C, D and E levels increased as did their mental health. One study took 50 participants, all of which were vitamin D deficient before hand - 20 of them used a sun bed for the recommended 5 minutes a week for 6 weeks...after the trial; only the 30 who didn’t use the sun beds remained vitamin D deficient.
Sun beds were invented in 1920 to CURE skin cancer, forget the bollocks they tell you.
Another study had a look at the use of sun beds with melanomas and found no increased risk for casual sun bed users.
Another of the studies concluded that a user wearing suncream in the sun was 4.5% more likely to be diagnosed with a melanoma than a person who used a sun bed WITHOUT suncream. These studies and MANY other studies in history have concluded that you are more likely to develop skin cancer from the chemicals and aluminium in the sun cream, than from a sun bed. The majority of suncreams contain avobenzone, oxybenzone, octocrylene, homosalate, octisalate, and octinoxate, all of which are carcinogens. Many scientists are now agreeing that the is no evidence to show the sun causes cancer, but loads to prove suncream DOES
Those saying sun beds are bad for you; are cancer research and pharmaceutical companies, those who make money from you getting cancer. When treating cancers naturally, sun beds and the natural UV rays from the sun, can actually help as they increase the vital vitamins.
