Tanning beds = slow arsenic poisoning

After a leading dermatologist called tanning beds "death beds," I took a careful look when tanning was compared to arsenic.

The article makes a false equivalency: tanning itself is not the same as rat poison, but instead eating small amounts of rat poison for years.  That's still unsettling.

I prefer my UV rays organic. If that makes me crunchy...so be it. ;)
