Doctors Warn of Second-Hand Tanning

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A study conducted by the American Academy of Dermatology has discovered that people in close proximity to well-tanned Americans are in danger of contracting skin cancer. "We're calling it the 'second-hand tanning' effect," said Dr. Christopher Parse, academy spokesperson. "For some complicated medical reason, melanoma will jump from individuals using tanning beds to the untanned in a heart beat. It's a fact." Dr. Parse was quick to point out that the AAD's research had nothing to do with congressional proposals to raise money for healthcare by taxing plastic surgery. "We only care about the science and innocent lives and the children," said Dr. Parse. "In that regard, we're no different from congress." (Photo:
