Will sunbeds make more more likely to get skin cancer?

15 April 2007

Question

I’m a healthy man in my 30’s, I eat a healthy, balanced diet which includes antioxidants, but I’m addicted to sunbeds, usually having 2 sessions per week. Am I at risk of skin cancer?

Answer

Yes. Even a healthy diet is unlikely to protect your skin in that way from intense exposure to ultra-violet radiation.
