London: Banning sunbed use could prevent a quarter of cases of the most common form of skin cancer in the under-40s, a new research suggests.The study from doctors at Yale University in the U.S. revealed that indoor tanning significantly increases the risk of basal cell carcinoma.It found that sunbed users are 69 per cent more likely to develop BCC before the age of 40 than people who never use the tanning method.The link was strongest among women, and the risk increased with years of sunbed use.And that study concluded that avoiding sunbeds can prevent a quarter of all cases of ‘early onset’ BCC – when the disease occurs before the age of 40.Among women, who are greater users of sunbeds, 43 per cent of cases could be avoided if sunbeds were banned.
