Pretty normal. Except for the throbbing pain in his chest that followed.

He went into work anyway and didn't realize there was an issue until he was lying on a table at the end of the day, having trouble breathing. Thankfully, his coworkers brought him to the Central Hospital of Wuhan.

Doctors examined him and determined he suffered

Spray Tans Not As Safe As You Thought

Filed under: Etc.Health

Spray Tan Danger

Why don't we all just agree, as a planet, that tanning isn't worth it.

Sound like a plan? We're talking BOTH sun and spray here.

As it turns out, the active ingredient in spray tanning, DHA, is harmful!

It has the potential to cause genetic alterations and DNA damage — two things that you do NOT want to happen. That tan is just not worth it.

Besides, what's wrong with fair skin??

Here's what one doctor said:

"I have concerns. The reason I'm concerned is the deposition of the tanning agents into the lungs could really facilitate or aid systemic absorption — that is, getting into the bloodstream."

More tests need to be done, though.

He went on:

"These compounds in some cells could actually promote the development of cancers or malignancies and if that's the case then we need to be wary of them."

If you MUST do this, make sure you're wearing proper protective gear.

But honestly, you should probably just not do it.

It's not worth it!
