    I'm writing an article for a national broadsheet newspaper about young people using sunbeds. I need to interview some people between 12-20 who use sunbeds regularly, more than once a month. If you're interested, or know anyone who might be, please message me ASAP.

    Thats exactly why I would never use one. What do you prefer a bit of colour on your skin or risk of cancer?

    Personally I think that all sunbeds should be carefully regulated and should have clear health warnings on them.

    Don't they already? The idea is a joke, the earth has an ozone layer to reduce the effects of the ultra violet rays from the sun, yet we make these devices which give of stupid amount of UV rays.

    I know that they aren't as regulated as they should be.

    I think they're talking about the ones you go to in a tanning salon, artificial tanning. Not the ones you lounge around on outside

    I did my A2 Physics project on this and therefore had to use a UV lamp - to show the dangers it presents (and this was a very low powered one) I had to wear eye protection (I was meant to - I only did it when my teacher was looking) and had to keep the lamp shielded so that only a thin beam could escape - this was then pointed away from everyone. Basically there were as many safety procedures as when we handle Uranium.

    Yep the british meaning of a subed has flourisent (sp) ultraviolet tubes in them which give of UV to create a tan.

    They are as dangerous as smoking yet they have clear warnings on them.

    I think most people are well aware of the dangers now but some people may still be ignorant to it.

    You handle Uranium at A level? Blimey!

    Is it true that one cubic centimetre of the stuff is enough to kill everybody in the room?
