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!

Girl With Flesh Eating Disease Takes Own Breaths!

Filed under: InspirationHealthScary!

aimee-copeland-zip-line-accident.jpg

This is a GREAT sign!

Aimee Copeland is reportedly breathing on her own after multiple amputations caused by necrotizing fasciitis, a rare flesh eating disease!

Before she had been hooked up to a respirator machine, unable to do her own breathing.

Her father, Andy, has tried to remain positive after her hands were amputated last Thursday… that's when she was actually able to mouth words to them.

What did she say?

"The power of love is undeniable."

That's an incredible thing to say, especially in her situation!

She now has to be focused on taking each breath on her own, which will help her lungs recover!

We're so happy to hear all of this — and we hope that she continues her recovery!

Secondhand Smoke Still Tied To Asthma In Kids!

Filed under: Baby BlabberHealthSmoking

Poor Kids Smoking

More evidence is mounting for the link between secondhand smoke and breathing problems, especially in kids who live with a smoker.

If you can't quit smoking for yourself, do it for your kids. This is ridiculous.

The biggest effect on wheeze and asthma symptoms was… where? Any takers?

No? It's easy!

It was seen in

Nick Cannon Talks About His "Lupus-Type" Disease

Filed under: Nick CannonHealthFast Food

Nick Cannon Lupus Like

It is just so sad to us that Nick Cannon, seriously one of the nicest guys in the business, has to deal with these health issues.

First it was kidney failure, then it was blood clots in his lungs.

Now it's being called a "lupus-type" disease, and it has him making some drastic changes.

Here's what he said:

"I can't have fast food anymore… no happy meals - I'm sad. But I feel a lot better. That kind of food slows you down."

Not only that, but he has been ordered to get at LEAST 6 hours of sleep a night… where he usually was running on two or three.

Which is absurd to get that much sleep anyway! That's just not healthy at all!

But we're glad that he's on the mend — and we hope it helps!

We miss you, Nick!

Nick Cannon Is Leaving Radio Show Due To Health Issues

Filed under: Sad SadNick CannonHealth

Nick Cannon Leaves Radio

Nooo! We're so sad to hear this!

Nice Cannon is stepping down from his morning radio show due to health issues — mainly the blood clots found in his lungs.

He DOES need his rest, though, and his health is what's important. Who knows, maybe he'll be back at some point?

Here's what he said:

"I actually had two blood clots in my lungs … and because of the blood clots … the right side of my heart was enlarged. I have been in the hospital since Friday, and actually, it's quite serious. My antibodies [in] my immune system were attacking my organs and it made my body even weaker."

"The news is out. This job is killing me… What I need to recuperate for my body to get stronger … these are the hours I need to be sleeping. … I've been going hard."

We need to you to get better, Nick, you're one of the nicest guys in town!

We'll miss talking to you every morning, for sure! Just get better and come back to us!
