Is this true?

My friend told me yesterday how he heard on the news some story about a girl who went to too many tanning salons to look nice for her wedding, and literally dropped dead at the alter because the excessive intake of UV radiation had caused her insides to become cooked.

If anybody has heard of this, or can send me some concrete evidence, I'd appreciate.. cause I smell urban legend.

doubtful

Skin cancer is one thing, cooking is quite another.

I don't believe UV rays can actually 'cook' something.

If you leave raw meat outside on a scorching summer day, will it become cooked from soaking up UV rays?

yeah this one isnt true.

although going to tanning beds is by no means good for you. If you want a fake tan uses the self tanners at home.

then again i work in a melanoma lab so i might be biased.

:( can someone invent a safe tanning bed that gives you a real tan... not those misty orange things... is there such a thing..? Could it be invented or no?
