I don't wear sunscreen or a hat- ever! I don't understand how my levels could be low, it makes me worry for my kids who have dark skin and HAVE to wear a hat at school, and sunscreen at day care grrr.
    Hat yes ..not sunscreen//my friend has a adopted little Ethiopian girl..no sunscreen for her
    We have the worst skin cancer rate in the world...put a hat on!!!!

However, my family have bad psoriasis & part of the treatment is using a sunbed but in a controlled environment. I think banning them is abit OTT.
    Dh has used something Similar at the dermatologists, but I'd say they would be exempt as they are so carefully Monitored and only for medical treatment.

So I say ban away, at least it would stop young people from making stupid decisions they regret later (us oldies can take care of ourselves lol). now if only alcohol and cigarettes didn't raise money for the govt, we could ban them too.
    I was thinking this, too. Young people think they are invincible. We cannot stop them from going out in the sun, but this is one very easy solution to stop at least some of the damage. I don't think any human rights are being taken away by not allowing silly young people to bake themselves.

    Unlike cigarettes and alcohol, it's also unlikely that there will be any kind of uproar.

    Maybe it'll just be pushed underground and become a huge black market etc etc

    Haha, no. I rarely used it, as I was always in a hurry to get out of there at night.

    It would be fun to sue her though, she was a ***** and a bully to work for.
