There is a new conspiracy that may be costing people their lives, this conspiracy is called Smart Tan. Ever since Clare Oliver died blaming UV tanning for her skin cancer, the salons have absolutely shit themselves. They are terrified they will go the way of the cigarette and be, rightly, demonised for their adverse health effects.
Ever since I heard about the idea of tanning under UV lamps I knew it had to be bad. How could baking yourself in such an unnatural manner be good for you? It was widely assumed that solariums were bad for you. I strongly advised my female friends to not go to them. I called them the man sized microwave.
Now that the danger of solariums has been so publicly aired the tanning salons have turned to a bunch of professional liars. This group is called Smart Tan. Smart Tan is a bunch of lawyers, doctors and scientists who have the â€œtruthâ€ on their side. These guys have supposedly proven that tanning is fine provided you take certain precautions, but all it really proves is that if you pay someone enough you can get them to say anything.
Tanning salons have been sending out letters to their customers advising them of the falsehood of Clare Oliverâ€™s allegations. They have even started advertising on the television. These people are deluding themselves if they think their word is going to be trusted above a girls dying words.
The age of UV tanning is over, the tanning salonâ€™s should realise this and move on to the alternatives.
