Risky Behavior Among Teens who ‘Fake Bake’

Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found certain types of risky behavior to be more common among high school students who use tanning booths over natural sun or no sun at all.

Risky Behavior Linked to Teens Who Tan Indoors

Risky Behavior Linked to Teens Who Tan Indoors

Types of Risky Behavior Include:

  • Binge Drinking
  • Unhealthy Dieting
  • Sexual Activity
  • Drug use among girls
  • Smoking among boys

These results are in a CDC analysis of 2009-11 national surveys. The report was published online Wednesday in the journal JAMA Dermatology.

Moe Facts:

About 1 in 5 high school girls reported indoor tanning in 2011, down from earlier years. It was less common among boys.

Skin cancer is linked with tanning and the most serious kind, melanoma, is rare but increasing in teens.

Using a tanning bed is particularly dangerous for younger users. People who begin tanning younger than age 35 have a 59% higher risk of melanoma. Using tanning beds also increases the risk of wrinkles and eye damage, and changes skin texture.

On a Personal Note:

Like so many of the  young girls in high school and college, I tanned frequently in tanning booths.  Most of the time I embraced the opportunity for a quick cat nap between school and practice.  In high school, I however, did not engage in the types of risky behavior listed above.  Of course, that was ten years ago!

Risky behavior aside, recent statistics on skin cancer may have influenced my decision to stop tanning.  Then again, I thought I was invincible at 17.
