sunbeds

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
everyone knows that sunbeds are dangerous, but according to a programme i saw a while ago, when there is a glass screen between the uv bulbs and where u stand, it is not as dangerous.

well, ive used sunbeds before and they've always had this glass screen. today i booked a course at a new place, and i went on the sunbed as usual and then saw that there was no glass screen just a wire thing with holes in to stop u leaning against the bulbs.

well, my mom said that as they are a member of the sunbed assosiation that i needent worry, but im not so sure

anyone know nethin???

    When you use sunbeds, you're dicing with death anyway.

    You wouldn't believe the number of sunbed related deaths that happen every year.

    you are also dicing with death when you smoke, when you drink, when you leave the house, when you go on holiday, when you get into a car, when you breathe.

    i already know they are dangerous but so are so many other things, anyway, does anyone know about this screen and whether there is meant to be one or not?

    I was taking the piss :p

    Anyway, if it's just a plain glass screen, it wont do much to filter out any UV radiation.

    Sunbeds I think are good, because people who are too cheap to go on holiday can still get a tan :p
