    I've never had a real interest in tanning beds, though I did sun bathe when I was younger (before it was a concern). I don't know enough about them without doing research.

    What about you, do you use tanning beds? What are your thoughts?

    That makes sense. One time shouldn't be that harmful, but I am curious to hear other opinions . Hopefully I remember to check back!

      I grew up with a tanning bed in my house. My mom loved tanning to keep a glow all year long. She loved Sun bathing her entire life and I am sure it had to do with both, the feel good of serotonin from the sun (happiness) and the cosmetic factor. She is 51 years old now and has had multiple cancerous moles removed as well as being diagnosed with melanoma. Needless to say, she doesn't use her tanning bed nearly as much as she used to, but she still enjoys the sun. She is just much more cautious. I don't personally think it's worth the risk...
