It has been proven that 78% of all cancers are caused by lack of vitamin D. You are supposed to get 15 mins of sun every day if you are white to produce enough vitamin D. In the winter, because there is not too much sun, your vitamin D levels go down a lot, hence you get sick easier, like the cold or flu etc.
80% of americans have a dangerously low vitamin D level. As long as you have a healthy diet full of anti-oxidants you will not be affected by UVA/UVB rays. In fact the anti-oxidants act like a built-in sunscreen, your body's own self-defense mechanism against injuries caused by the uv rays.
If you get burned in the sun in just one hour without sunscreen on, that means you are not consuming enough anti-oxidants.
I am using a tanning bed once a week between december and february. My friends think that I am killing myself and that I should rather use sprays or use sunscreen in the tanning bed. Helloo!!!??? Those are the exact things that cause cancer. They are loaded with chemicals.
