Lobbyists for the multibillion-dollar skin-care and dermatology industries — attempting to scare people entirely out of the sun and into daily sunscreen over-usage — continue to make the ridiculous statement that regular UV exposure is as harmful to your skin as cigarette smoking is to your body.
“That statement is completely without basis, is completely inaccurate, is fundamentally flawed and is pretty much libelous,” Smart Tan Vice President Joseph Levy said. “I can’t put it any more plainly. Comparing UV exposure to cigarette smoking is a fraudulent statement.”
“It is more obvious than ever that regular, moderate UVB exposure is an important part of a healthy lifestyle,” Levy said. “The professional indoor tanning community is doing more than anyone else to teach people how to avoid sunburn while maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks associated with too much or too little sunlight. Anti-sun scare campaigns are dark ages thinking.”
