voice of the european indoor tanning industry

Both indoor and outdoor tanning has been heavily criticized mostly using outdated scientific findings and completely disregarding benefits of moderate sunbed use or outdoor exposure to sunlight. UV radiation has been known as the primary source of vitamin D and other mediators needed for good health. With that in mind, more recently, researchers have called for immediate revision of public health recommendations as it has been noted that “nonburning UV exposure is a health benefit and — in moderation — should be recommended as such”.
