Sweden is now in the depths of winter darkness and many Swedes are heading to sunny vacation spots and about half of all young Swedes suntan while on vacations, despite the fact that most are aware of the risks.

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority issued a report saying that suntanning is especially common among 18 - 24 year olds. And the younger someone suntans, the larger the risk of later developing the skin cancer malignant melanoma.
