Yesterday, her mother demanded a ban on unsupervised coin-operated sunbeds.It's very sad that her mother is setting the example to be orange and cancerous.
Sharon Hannaford, 34, added: 'These sunbeds are very high powered and there is nobody there to prevent a youngster going in and doing this. I want them shut down.'
Funny comments from the inTheMix.com.au forum about the mother/daughter article:
SparklingSam says: "I wonder why she wanted to use a tanning booth"
Heist9000 says: "How much irony can one family possibly 'radiate' ?"
Speaking of cancer from tanning, here's a quote from the October 12th, 2009 issue of Time magazine:
In July, the cancer-research wing of the World Health Organization (WHO) added tanning beds and sunlamps to its list of human-cancer-causing agents. "The risk of cutaneous melanoma is increased by 75% when use of tanning devices starts before 30 years of age," reads a statement on the WHO website.
