Addicted to tan

Last year the World Health Organisation reclassified tanning beds from “probably carcinogenic” to “carcinogenic to humans”. Yet people do continue to use solariums and it seems some of those people may be addicted to their tanning. In the United States researchers interviewed university students and found that 54 per cent of them used indoor tanning facilities regularly. Of these the average visits per year was 23 and 40 per cent of the tanners scored as being addicted to tanning. Those addicted tanners also scored higher on anxiety measures and were more likely to excessively use alcohol, marijuana and other substances. So for these people just telling them that UV exposure is cancer causing may not be enough, you will need to treat their addiction or mood disorder as well. Australian rates of solarium use are far below those reported in this study but the lessons still apply.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
