Ask the Doc with Dr. Whaley – Tanning & Hearing Aids

Health

BKP and Katy talked with Dr. Whaley today about several great topics. One that is especially important this time of year as most females get ready for “bathing suit season” – Tanning. Dr. Whaley addresses the dangers of tanning beds, discusses spray tans and gives some alternate options that can be used instead to gain a great summer glow. The other viewer questions Dr. Whaley discusses in today’s “Ask the Doc” segment are:

What causes Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Hearing aids are very expensive. How often will I have to be making an investment to replace or update them?

If you have questions for our doctor e-mail them to chief@fetchyournews.com or 706-889-9700

We would like to thank Georgia Cancer Specialist for sponsoring this segment!

    Why is it that the positive effects of sunbeds are never discussed? Sunbeds, or tanning beds have many healthful qualities. Here are a few:

    • A 20-year study demonstrated that both sun exposure and sunbed exposure reduced the risk of death; women who used tanning beds were 23% less likely to die of any cause than women who did not use them.
    • Sunbed use is associated with increased vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is essential to human health.
    • Sunbed use is associated to lower breast-cancer risk.
    • Sunbed use is associated with stronger bones.
    • Sunbed use can cure psoriasis and eczema and sunbeds are often recommended by dermatologists.
    • Sunbed use more than three times yearly is associated with a 40-50% reduced risk of endometrial cancer.
    • Sunbed use is associated with a reduced risk of clots.
    •Sunbeds can also help to build a protective tan, which prevents sun damage during sunny vacations.
