|A potential legacy of cancer|
If you recall from an earlier post, I get my hair cut at a local salon that also owns UV tanning equipment. I returned again today (wearing my BITNP t-shirt) and decided to poke around a bit (with my camera) while the rest of my family was getting their locks trimmed. I’ll have a more detailed post later, but I had to share this one discovery.
There’s one tanning system they have called “The Legacy.” It’s a “tanning tube” in which one inserts their legs only as they sit in a raised chair at one end. I suppose this is catered towards the female clients that want those glowing tanned legs as they wear summer shorts.
Can you believe it? The only legacy this machine will make is an increased risk and occurrence of skin cancer! Considering that 38 percent of melanoma on women is discovered on the legs, this is an appalling apparatus. I just couldn’t believe it!
Again, I’ll have more to share later on solariums, but I just wanted to share this ironic and shocking discovery.
