Surprise: tanning beds, which blast defenseless skin with concentrated ultraviolet radiation, have finally hit the "highest cancer risk" category at The International Agency for Research on Cancer. And, according to the 2007 International Journal of Cancer, which reviewed studies on UVR equipment, tanning bed use before the age of 35 kicks the melanoma risk up by a whopping 75 percent.

"Carcinogenic to humans" indeed.
