this is just a question but ive been told different stories and was wondering if anyone knows for certain which is correct...at a tanning salon they said they could legally let pregnant women tan bc its the heat not the uv rays that cause the problem...so if youre pregnant and go in a stand up bed or a bed that hasnt been ran like in the morning or we as long as it isnt above a certain temp your fine you just need a drs note...ive personally know 2 women who have their whole pregnancy and the babies were fine, but then ive been told its dangerous and not to even think about doing it, i havent bc im more of a better safe than sorry type im just curious to know is it okay or not?

Here is an interesting article explaining why it's not safe. It has to do with the body temperature raising and the loss of folic acid from UV rays http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/19904/tanning_beds_are_unhealthy_for_pregnant.html?cat=52
