Thinking of buying this tanning bed, worth it?

10 Bulbs, Vitamin D & Tanning (UVA, UVB, Red & Blue Light) $1,497.00 http://tanningbeds.mercola.com/

Maybe someone can recommend a similiar product ? Mercola probably inflates the cost due to the name brand

Receiving vitamin d through sunlight is superior to supplementation. His question is not about vanity, it's about health.

Go outside. Don't use a tanning bed.

I think they are not very popular. When we were small children our parents had a sun lamp for the winter months for the face and back which must have been all the rage in those days for small children. In the 70s my mother moved to a half size sun lamp but I think they are dangerous unnatural things you are best off avoiding.

Better a long walk in the out doors in the winter months in the US/UK when you get no vit D from the sun than 20 minutes in winter under sun lamp. You can build your vit D stocks in the summer to tide you over winter.

Tan is interesting. I am getting to be the only 100% white person (with freckles) I see these days as so many women I mix with have fake tans. You start to look alien because you don't have a tan unless I go up to Scotland I suppose.

I sued a sun bed once last year at our gym. It slightly burned me and is very old. They said they were going to get a new one. Never again.

Save that money for a vacation down in Miami. Then you will get all the sun you need. Enough sun to leave you tanned for winter up north.

If you're in a cold climate, why do you NEED to tan? Speaking as a pale-skinned person... I understand the wish to have a nicer skin tone, but artificial methods don't seem worth it.
