Researchers link tanning, other addictions
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The glow of a summer tan may not be as innocent as it used to be.
Researchers find there's a link between tanning and other addictions.
A new study finds people who are dependent on tanning were six times as likely to have a history of alcohol dependence, and three times as likely to have seasonal affective disorder.
Those addicted to tanning were mostly women, linked to nearly seven times higher risk of tanning dependency.
