We know that indoor tanning has been linked to melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Now a new study suggests it may also raise the risk of more common skin cancers - basal and squamous cell cancers.
Are you an indoor tanner? Do you think this study will change how you tan?
Those of you who have basal or squamous cell - What do you think about the last paragraph of the article?
