Want A Tan? Slather On Coppertone, Drink The Coke

June 23, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola has warned people who use its cola beverage to speed tanning that the beverage offers no protection from harmful UV rays. “It’s a drink!” the company exclaimed on its website. The trend began with Australian entertainer Peter Andre, who said he soaked himself in Coke before sunbathing. Andre’s endorsement notwithstanding, a Canadian dermatologist says there is no scientific proof at all that Coke helps people tan faster and in fact is a dangerous practice.
