Exposure to ultraviolet light either from the sun or from indoor tanning equipment greatly increases risk of skin cancer, including malignant melanoma.

To that end, Great Britain has recently outlawed use of tanning beds by people under age 18.

If we limit sun exposure and sun damage, particularly before age 18 but throughout a person's lifetime, the risk of skin cancer will be significantly decreased.
