A government-funded study of more than 9,000 children found 6% had used a sunbed and in some areas of the country 40% of teenagers used them every week.
Goodness, even when I was a teenager (a long, long time ago), we already knew that using sunbeds will surely cause skin cancer. How come those kids don't know that? I'm scared to think that they might know it, but are still going to risk it for a pretty looking "healthy" tanned skin...
What's with this obsession of white people to have more tanned skin and with the people of color to look whiter? We should teach our kids to celebrate diversity and see beauty in every human being.
