Health Alert: Tanning beds linked to cancer

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Tanning beds have long been linked to skin cancer, and now researchers say the earlier people use them, the greater their risk. Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco analyzed tanning bed and cancer studies going back to 1977. They found people younger than 25 who used tanning salons had a significantly higher risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer than someone who never tanned indoors.


(CBS) - As cold season gets underway, some researchers say, don't turn to Vitamin D for relief. New Zealand scientists say it doesn't help fight colds. They followed 322 adults for more than a year and found no difference between the group that took Vitamin D and those who didn't. The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.


(CBS) - A trend that's moving in the right direction -- new numbers show 9 out of 10 high school teens did not drink and drive last year. The Centers for Disease Control says there's been a 54- percent decrease in teen drinking and driving since 1991. But researchers are quick to point out that nearly one million teenagers still drink then get behind the wheel every year -- putting themselves and others at risk.
