Win Cancer!

What's up with a halifax radio station offering unlimited tanning for 2 months as a "fabulous prize"? Winning an all-inclusive vacation... COOL! Winning a trip to a local spa... Awesome! Winning a 55 percent more likely to develop malignant melanoma..

Winning an all-inclusive vacation... COOL! Winning a trip to a local spa... Awesome! Winning a 55 percent more likely to develop malignant melanoma... bummer.

Now I'm all for freedom of choice. If you wanna smoke, smoke. If you wanna look like a dehydrated alligator when your 32, go right ahead. But it is irresponsible for the radio station to give this shit away, as a prize, to their 18-34 listening demographic.

Seriously, tanning causes CANCER.
