Fake tan warning

Fake tans have again been found to boost skin cancer rates. A large Swedish study revealed the popularity of solariums had led to a sharp rise in skin cancer on parts of the skin usually covered by clothing.

The 37-year study of 10.2 million people found incidence of two types of skin cancers - the more common squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) in the epidermis and the invasive SCCs under the epidermis - increased considerably.

The increase was largest among covered sites suggesting intentional tanning, said Archives of Dermatology.

SCC is most commonly found in people over the age of 70, but the study showed younger generations were increasingly suffering from the skin cancers.

In Australia, the tanning industry is unregulated, however people under the age of 16 are prohibited from using solariums.

A further study published in the Journal of National Cancer Institute strongly linked melanomas with tanning salons.
