Tan-inducing implant


Biotech Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals is to test an implant that can provide a tan, protect skin against UV rays and treat skin cancer precursors.

The Australian company says its drug produces eumelanin, a pigment which can protect skin from UV exposure.
The product, administered through an implant "the size of a grain of rice" under the skin, would allegedly give you a sun-kissed look for a few months as a side effect.

I don't know what to think of the news but I do know that I'm ready to swallow, spread or even be implanted with anything that can protect my skin from the old prune effect.

Finally something that may turn Micheal Jackson black again. Now, only if he could find a drug that would make him a normal human being like the rest of us.
