Melanotan injections to prevent cancer


Thursday 11th December 2008

OK so our readers will know that we’ve posted a couple of times on here about Melanotan – and for those who don’t know what this is, it’s injectable tans. Now they might on first glance look like a wholly unnatural way of getting a tan, maybe you think it’s vanity gone mad? It has been labelled by some as the Barbie Drug, however if you take a look at the Pale Girls Guide and watch the YouTube video embedded on her blog, you’ll see that the researchers may be onto something a lot deeper than just plain vanity and there may be a key health breakthrough in there.

Every summer we are warned about dangers of the sun’s UV rays and how to avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm, wear a sun hat, slap on factor zillion etc. Well, Melanotan might save thousands from skin cancer because the injected substance causes the body to release more melanin, which is usually released by the body once the skin has been damaged, i.e. sunburn, to protect it from burning again.

As we’ve said before, the injections must must must be rigorously tested before the general public can feel confident that it won’t affect them in some obscure way. Every drug has side effects. Epitan, the guys in the YouTube video above, aim to actively sell the product in three years time. It could be a breakthrough. We’ll definitely be following the progress of Melanotan because we know there are so many people who are just as curious as us!

Keep checking back here for the latest updates. Have you used Melanotan yet? Or are you thinking about it?
