Suntanning first became popular in the 1920s when fashion designer Coco Chanel made the practice truly fashionable. Today the medical science of dermatology has verified the hazards of overexposure to the sun and the indiscriminate use of tanning beds. These medical hazards include skin cancer and premature aging of the skin (wrinkles). Now there is a 16-minute informative DVD that sums up the problems associated with suntanning, and shows how a few changes, such as seeking shade, applying sunscreen, wearing sunglasses and hats, utilizing spray tanning, and avoiding tanning beds, can keep any teenager or young adult looking good and keeping safe while enjoying the sunshine. Every high-school and community library Health/Medicine collection should include the Teens & Tanning: Sun Safety Update DVD. Also highly recommended for young viewers grades 6 to adult is the MyPyramid: Pass It On! DVD (1571751041, $49.95) for healthy eating guidelines and information.
