Teenagers using sunbeds may develop deadly skin cancer
London: A new research has revealed that teenagers who use sunbeds almost double their chances of developing the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Those who recurrently use UV booths are nearly twice a likely to develop a life-threatening melanoma, reports the Daily Express.
And the earlier that sunbed usage begins, the greater the risk of developing a cancerous tumour before 40.
The study found that people under 25 are more vulnerable to UV radiation dangers.
More than 600 people diagnosed with skin cancer between the ages of 18 and 39 were examined by researchers at the University of Melbourne.
Those who started tanning before the age of 20 were 88 per cent more likely to develop a deadly melanoma than those who never used a sunbed.
