I agree. And the new owners will not do that, they have had several customers complain about that and has assured everyone they would not do the same. They r good people. U should go check them out.

Somebody invented a tanning bed that you could use for 20 minutes a day instead of ALL day in the sun that nobody has time for anymore. Lol.

Well, you can die from foods you eat, things you drink, the sun, smoking, second hand smoke, driving a car, flying in a plane, riding a train or a bus. So, do you not eat, drink anything, stay indoors 24/7, smoke, breathe, or travel to and from anywhere? If you do, you have as much chance of contracting something you can die of as well as someone that lays in a tanning bed. If you don't eat, drink, breathe, or ever leave the inside of your house....you are already dead.

See, the problem is that none of those things--including smoking, in most cases that

I'm aware of--are directly related to vanity. It would be one thing if there were vast health benefits, but instead it just seems like women are trying to fit some arbitrary, and possibly delusional, standard of beauty.

I knew that someone would have to say something about skin cancer. Why are you looking under "Paradise Tan" in the topix section if you care nothing about being tan. Your just that curious about the tanning salon itself?

Tanning gives you vitamin D and also releases endorphins in the brain which in turn makes you feel fabulous. I enjoy the process of laying there listening to music tanning just as much as having a tan.

For example - Some people like fishing some people think it's boring. Some people go golfing and think it's a relaxing calm sport others hate it. To each there own. I'm not going to argue that tanning doesn't have health risks, I am aware. I myself am not doing it just for the look of a tan. I enjoy tanning. So go do whatever hobby it is you like doing.

There are lots of other things that elicit a much greater endorphin response than tanning. It's important to understand that UV rays cause your cells to undergo unnecessary amounts of oxidative stress that only expedite the aging process. Additionally, some studies have shown that tanning in the sun--not in a tanning bed--are what upregulates Vitamin D. This is a common myth of the industry, and definitely not your fault that you think otherwise. It is indeed possible that you DO have some form of endorphin release, or at the very least that dopaminergic pathways in your brain are firing away; however, this is likely a placebo effect obtained from hearing or reading "scientific facts" from the owners of tanning salons who care much less about your health than they do about making a buck. Regular exercise is an excellent way to get the feel-good effects of endorphins, particularly because it forces your mitochondria to produce enough endogenous antioxidants that you effectively create a sort of immunity to oxidative stress. This will slow the effects of aging, including the shortening of telomeres.

I can't say I don't have my own bad habits--a recent publication in Nature suggested that sugar is just as damaging to the liver as alcohol, which means I'm in trouble--but, as a former sun fiend myself, I do wish I had learned what I know now a long time ago. Regardless, if tanning makes you feel as good about yourself as you say, then I suppose living happily is more important than the potential risks. Best of luck to you.

What about the men that tan? And there is no difference in laying in a tanning bed for 20 minutes than working in a flower bed or mowing your yard, or laying by a pool. I don't tan because I'm vain, I just enjoy it and have no time to be outside, which I hate.

I agree. I enjoy the whole tanning process. Sometimes it is the only peaceful time I get to myself. I put my earphones in, turn on my IPod and really relax for 20 minutes. And I think having a tan makes people look more healthy and if it can boost someone's self esteem, I don't see that that should be anyone else's buisness. So I agree with you 100%.

There IS a difference, you get tan in a tanning bed by the rays that penetrate your skin but don't burn as opposed to the rays that do burn. There are UVA rays and UVB rays, I think the beds have UVB, both are dangerous.And nobody has mentioned brown spots, you're gonna love them.AND our bodies only produce so much melanin, when it's gone it's gone.Producing a splotchy look, which you'll also love. Beware.And do you really think these "long wave rays" that you are enjoying are not penetrating your skin somehow & possibly doing damage internally?
Whatever

Whatever. You live YOUR life, and I'll live mine. I have been tanning since tanning beds came out in the 80s and I have NO brown spots, and I'm not splotchy. No matter what anyone does in life, people find the dangers in it. If we avoid everything that is dangerous we would live in a freaking bubble!
