Tanning Industry Fights Back

The tanning industry is using some interesting tactics to fight for their lives.   They are slamming the dermatologists and the resultant decrease in vitamin D that we are seeing in this country.  They are hammering them for making the sun and sunlight so evil.   Yes!  I have been saying this for a long time.   The problem is that the tanning booths are NOT the sun. Sorry, guys, but  manmade stuff NEVER can match mother nature.   And though your point to criticize the dermatologists is valid it doesn’t mean we should jump into your beds*.   Instead we should be outside, barefooted, somewhat exposed and getting  more real sunlight.

*This comes from a guy who used a tanning booth years ago in Maine and I believe I got melanoma from it.
