Ladies, Gents and guidos of the Jersey Shore, just when you thought you found a safe alternative to baking yourself in a tanning bed, we now find out that spray tans are unhealthy for you too!  ABC News is reporting that the chemical used to make you tan (dihydroxyacetone) has been shown to cause.... genetic mutations.  Scientific studies have only been done in a cell dish, not directly on humans, but the findings are concerning and more tests will have to be done.  Some doctors are saying that the spray tan can cause malignancies or even cancer.  If you are going to continue to use spray tan, the FDA recommends that you avoid eyes, nose and mouth.  Inhaling could prove to be dangerous as well.
