Are tanning beds the next tobacco industry or the victim of medical bias?

As some of you may know I am an advocate for natural health and I believe that the sun is natural. The sun is the giver of life all living creatures on the planet evolved with the sun we need sun to live without the sun we would all die.

I believe that responsible sun exposure is vital to health and that avoidance of the sun is the cause of much illness. Can too much sun be harmful yes that is why we burn it is nature’s way of preventing us from getting to much sun just like getting a tan is nature’s way of regulating the amount of sunlight we absorb.

The big issue with the article below is a freedom of speech issue does the tanning industry have the right to speak what they believe and back it up with science or should the government agencies protect us from a corrupt industry. The article is bias toward the medical view point but does give some perspective of both sides.  Check out the article see what you think and if you are new to the idea that the sun is not all bad check out Dr. Mercola’s site he has a lot of info on vitamin D and the sun and tanning beds. http://search.mercola.com/search/pages/Results.aspx?k=sun
