Why would someone sit in the sun deliberately?  To get tan.

Yea, I was inside all day yesterday, It was so nice to be finally back outside after that long day.  I miss Houston Summers, hot and humid but there was always a neighborhood pool we spent our days at, We went to the pool every day then and my kids and I sported some nice tans and sun kissed hair.

Exactly, If it's Summer and there's a pool or a beach there's people tanning.  Frankly, I think tanning has gotten safer not unpopular with all the spf stuff now.  I don't remember tanning creams or lotions when I was a kid, We'd burn, peel and then tan.  We'd come home and put baby oil on to soothe the hurt.

Your parents may be excused, Jambles, because you grew up when people didn't really understand the damage they were doing to their kids by allowing them to "burn and peel." I'd say any patent who deliberately slows and encourages that these days is guilty of neglect at best. We know that even one childhood burn ups the risk of melanoma later.

I had an abnormal mole removed from my arm and tested a few Summers ago, It was benign.  Melanoma is a deadly cancer, Yes.  Bury the myth, That cancer can happen to anybody, sun worshiper or not.

I would liken it to seat belt usage.  I never wore a seat belt as a child because my parents did not know the danger.  My kids have never riden in a car without a seat belt because we do know the danger.

I did not wear sun screen as a child because the danger was not known.  I and my kids do wear sun screen now because the danger is known.

Any one who does not wear a seat belt , purposely tans  or does  not use sun screen in 2013 is ingnoring well documented facts of the danger they are putting themselves in.  The fact that it was different 40 years ago does not mean it was right 40 years ago.  Knowledge is only power if you if you use that  knowledge.

Bury what myth? Of course cancer can happen to anyone. But there are things you can do to lower your risk of getting it, and there are things that you can do to raise your risk of getting it. Deliberate tanning raises your risk of ending up with melanoma. That's not a myth.

My parents also smoked in the car and house when we were growing up because we did not understand the dangers of secondhand smoke. Since we now know those dangers, few parents smoke around their young kids in closed houses or cars, and those who do are, in my opinion, abusing their kids.

Jams, it is not a "myth" that sunburn causes melanoma. It is established fact. I really don't anyone who deliberately tans anymore. I thought most people had given up on that practice, due to the health concerns, how it ages the skin etc.
