Despite the sun, heat and humidity, the state of Texas actually has one of the lowest percentages of skin cancer in the country. "And there's a particularlylow incidence of skin cancer in San Antonio," says Levine. "This is likely due to the fact that there are very few tanning facilities in this city." Indeed, tanning beds may increase the risk of melanoma by 75 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. [CDC]
