    Are you certain about that? I haven't seen any studies that went into detail about exposure levels.

    I'd also be curious to see a comparison between tanning beds and regular sun tanning.

    So? Living past 55 doesn't seem too exciting anyways.

    That article might make me reconisder this strategy. Maybe I'll just layout after breakfast for a week or two instead.

    Bottom line is though, I got over trying to protect myself from every possible harmful thing that exists when I was about 20. I was a bit neurotic then. I've chilled out quite a bit, and taken in life, and I really have enjoyed it.

    I might have to get bits and pieces of that life cut off in another 20 years, or maybe I'll get hit by a bus or eaten by a polar bear. We shall see!



    Maybe I'm a prototypical ESTP risk taker?
    The sun is the best source of vitamin D known to man. I'd say go for it!

    The "uv rays cause cancer" myth has been debunked. Read a newspaper, people.
    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”

    I don't really understand the hype of looking like a burnt piece of toast. Okay well that's kinda harsh, I admit some people look great with a tan. BUT I have always loved the light color of my skin. I think of it like Marilyn Monroe, she was a beautiful woman imo, never needed any UV rays or fake bake creams/sprays to get noticed. Why can't people, women especially, appreciate their natural beauty?

    But hey i suppose if it makes you feel better about yourself... go for it. I rather you look pastic, than constantly ask me how your hair looks
