Kate Gosselin, Why Are You Going Tanning? Don’t You Know It’s Awful For You?

Kate, there’s no reason to burn your skin when there are so many great self tanners out this spring!

Kate Gosselin and her dancing partner, Tony Dovolani took a break from training for her Dancing with the Stars debut to stop in to Closer To The Sun tanning salon in her hometown, Reading, PA on Mar. 15. Why, Kate, why? Whether you like it or not you’re a role model both to your fans and to your eight children and by going tanning you are not setting a good example. “It is shocking that she would use a tanning bed only months after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) made a major announcement that indoor tanning is more dangerous than previously thought in terms of skin cancer,” says Dr. Howard Sobel, an NYC cosmetic dermatologist. In addition, “according to the National Cancer Institute, women who use tanning beds more than once a month are 55% more likely to develop melanoma,” Dr. Sobel adds. With all the overwhelming evidence that tanning beds DO cause cancer, why are you still fake baking, Kate? There’s no good excuse. If you think you’ll look better tan for your big Dancing with the Stars premiere, try out one of these great self-tanners. They’re a risk-free bronze in a bottle! - Marta Topran

Interesting that conveniently placed below this article are links to various products that the reader is supposed to buy because they were scared into doing so. No doubt this is an affiliate link and you get a kickback from the purchase. I urge anyone that is considering buying products like this to put on their skin visit the Environmental Working Group’s website here:


Many of these types of products cause cancer. And, sunscreens also cause cancer. Look up your favorite one on this database and you will be surprised.

So Marta, how much did the cosmetic industry pay you for this ad? The IRAC report has been discredited, nor did the report offer any new information and is largely viewed as a proganda piece to promote cosmetic self tanners. The National Cancer Intitute’s primary funding comes from the cosmetic industry. So Marta, how credible does that make you?

“A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal “Dermato-Endocrinology” shows that there is no statistically significant connection between sunbeds and melanoma in those who can develop suntans (skin type II-VI), with increased risk centered only on those whose skin is so fair it cannot tan (skin type I).”

The benefits of vitamin D production from UV exposure far outweigh harmful effects. Cancer prevention and survivability, immune system functioning correctly, mental health, bone maintenance, etc.

The tanning scare is a huge scam.
