Sunbeds as dangerous as smoking
Beds moved to highest risk level for cancer
Sunbeds are as dangerous as smoking, the World Health Organisation has said.
The group placed use of the beds into thehighest risk level for cancer, moving their rating from ‘probably carcinogenic’ to ‘carcinogenic to humans’ – putting them alongsidecigarettes, alcohol and asbestos.
Ministers are now considering introducing changing the law to protect people, particularly the young, who use them.
The shift in theWHO‘s stance was prompted by the results of a review of recent studies ofultraviolet radiation(UV) tanning by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon.
The deadliest form of skin cancer,malignant melanoma, is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among British women in their 20s. Two years ago experts warned the risk of developing skin cancer from using sunbeds has trebled in just a decade because the demand for an instant tan – ‘binge tanning’– has led to the marketing of increasingly powerful sunbeds.
