Is Tanning Addicting?
Could getting some rays actually be addicting? Yes it can, says Dr. Richard F. Wagner Jr., a dermatologist at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. In one of his studies, Wagner asked beachgoers a series of questions from a test used to identify alcohol addiction. Called CAGE, Wagner modified the questions to fit tanning. "Have you ever felt you needed to cut down on your tanning? Have people annoyed you by criticizing your tanning? Have you ever felt guilty about tanning? Have you ever felt you needed to tan first thing in the morning — as an eye opener?" Wagner found that 26 percent of people surveyed met the CAGE criteria for addiction. He gave a second test as well - a modified version of the psychiatric profession’s official diagnostic criteria for a substance abuse disorder. Based on that, 53 percent met the criteria. Wagner concluded that people "who chronically and repetitively expose themselves to ultraviolet light to tan may have a novel type of ultraviolet-light substance-related disorder." Maybe it's time to take tanning even more seriously than we already do.
 
 
It is Hot
How Much Water Do You Need?
Summer means heatwaves. Heatwaves mean dehydration. So how much water should you be drinking to avoid this? While most people know of the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, some people need more than that. Especially men, who some doctors say need to drink as many as 13 eight-ounce glasses of water a day! Women should aim for nine, unless you're pregnant or nursing - then you'll want to increase your intake even more. It sounds tough, but if you have two glasses between meals and then two with each meal, you'll be well on your way. And remember, if you're feeling thirsty, you're most likely already dehydrated. So start in the morning and continue drinking all day.
