      Mommy Monday: The Dangers of Tanning

      Lynchburg, VA - New research shows one in three young Caucasian women are still heading to their local tanning salon.

      CDC researchers say 29% of young women use tanning beds.

      The statistic hasn't changed at all over the past few years, despite several warnings and doctors who have been pushing sunscreen to prevent skin cancers.

      Skin cancer cases are on the rise.

      Researchers say the solution is simple: avoid tanning beds.

      Many aren't getting the message, however, so they are urging parents to talk to their kids about why tanning can be dangerous.
