Word to the melanin-challenged...My dear possums,

There's more evidence on the hazards of tanning beds. Baking under their artificial lamps as little as once a month can boost your risk of a deadly form of skin cancer by 55% -- and the danger is even greater when done in early adulthood.
A new study involving more than 106,000 Scandinavian women shows what its researchers say is the strongest evidence to date that artificial tanning can cause malignant melanoma.
