Rule #290: Tanning beds

Again, another example of putting vanity before health. We know this is bad for you, yet we continue to operate, endorse and use them. What the hell is wrong with us? It's funny when you think about our mentality. We want more exercise but we drive everywhere and try to find the closest spot to the front of the mall. We want more sun, so we go inside and cook ourselves.
The risk of skin cancer increases by 75 per cent when tanning beds are used prior to the age of 35.

Six provinces have now either introduced legislation or brought in regulations that restrict tanning bed use by youth. Quebec, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland have outright bans, while teens in Manitoba need to show parental consent. What does that tell you?

In the new world, tanning beds will be banished from the land!



  1. Now you want to take away my right to tan because it is bad for me.
    Maybe it makes one feel better about them self unlike alcohol. We
    know beer is bad for us. Ok and so it shall be written no tanning beds
    or booze in the new world even it make people feel better.

    I say "tan away". Personal choice. Then there is anything in moderation.
    I agree with above comment. Perhaps alcohol and drugs (legal and illegal)
    should also be banned if you feel tanning beds are harmful.
    Just saying

    1. Good point. However, booze and drugs don't give you cancer, they just make you funny or at least make you think you're funny. And maybe a little liver disease.

  3. I've never understood how anyone would tan so much that they end up looking like 55 year old rawhide by the age of 30...whether by tanning bed or natural sun.

    1. You and me both. I get my sun biking, doing yard work and passing out by accident.

  4. Each and every single client must feel welcome at the tanning beauty salon. When they call they must feel like they are valued, even. Some consumers truly feel much better about registering for tanning services if they can take a look around the center initially. the bronzing boutique

  5. In the event that you need to utilize tanning lights, then plainly the most essential bit of tanning hardware that you should have is a tanning bed or tanning corner itself. tanning way
