Tanning Beds Placed In Top Cancer Risk Category

(CNN) - You may want to think twice about heading to the tanning salon!

International experts have moved tanning - especially tans from the UV radiation in tanning beds - into the top cancer risk category.

The World Health Organization's cancer arm analyzed about 20 studies on tanning
and the use of beds and found their use can raise the risk of skin cancer by up to 75%.

The new classification makes tanning beds as deadly as arsenic and mustard gas.
