Tanning beds aka cancer beds

A special committee of the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer found that tanning beds increase the risk of skin cancer by 75%. UV radiation from tanning beds is as carcinogenic as asbestos, cigarettes, arsenic, and radium. Though in my opinion, this finding goes in the DUH bin. I mean, wasn’t it kinda obvious that tanning beds would increase the risk of skin cancer already?
