This, according to a recent study, is that messages are health risks everywhere, so that tanning booths are not known for being more dangerous than the rest.

59 percent of respondents believe that "the use of tanning booths can be harmful, but almost everything causes cancer nowadays."

And 52 percent agreed that "the use of UV bed is no more dangerous than a lot of other things that people do."

They think there are so many dangers "inevitable" around that make risk behaviors become less relevant, says Smita Banerjee, Scientist Cancer Center Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York. "Of course, the failure of this type of thinking is to assume that all hazards pose the same level of threat or harm," said Banerjee.

Only 10 percent of respondents said they did not believe that the use of UV booths is so bad, because many people who use long-lived and 12 percent said it was more important for them to get a tan that concerns about skin cancer.

Knowing what drives a girl to rationalize their risk behaviors will help health professionals to create awareness messages to connect better and thus provide a stronger deterrent effect.

For example, physicians might respond to a patient who believes that "everything" causes cancer by explaining how to prioritize risks. This rationalization is derived from a very basic human support and is based on the inability of people to see the differences between the simple risk and real danger.

The findings were published on 18 June in the journal Archives of Dermatology.

It may seem that the threats to their health are for "everywhere" but this does not justify spend with UV booths and tanning.
