One million people can't be wrong, right?

Unless, of course, they were visitors to a Web site promising to transmit ultraviolet rays through their computer screens, enabling you to tan from work or at home. When users click on the offer for five free minutes of tanning, they receive a message that UV exposure can kill.

The site is apparently so popular, the original site has either crashed or been taken down.

A British skin cancer charity set up the site two months ago to draw attention to the risks posed by tanning beds and other devices.
