In a new paper, researchers explored the effectiveness of targeting tanning bed users with Google ads that warned of skin cancer risks. In the past decade, tanning beds have been identified as a deadly human carcinogen and major public health issue. As of 2009, the World Health Organization began classifying ultraviolet (UV) radiation-emitting tanning devices, including tanning beds and lamps, to the list of the most dangerous forms of cancer-causing radiation—a group that includes plutonium, radium, and radiation from the sun. According to several studies, the number of skin cancer cases due to tanning is higher than the number of lung cancer cases due to smoking.

They aren't just painful, peeling, itchy, unsightly blemishes—they also increase your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly in children, who may be twice as likely to develop melanoma if they get even a single blistering sunburn. When sunburns do occur, however, take the steps necessary to reduce the pain and alleviate the damage. Sunburns are sneaky—they start with a tell-tale tingling or feeling of tightness in the skin during the initial exposure, followed by a slow reddening, but may take 4–6 hours to fully develop.
