It does keep the vitamin D levels up. Recently at North Carolina Med Society meeting, there was a resolution to support the AMA in its push to make tanning illegal for anyone under 18 years of age.

Probably does reduce the risk of many forms of cancer. For example, if he's gonna die of melanoma in his forties, a man's lifetime risk of prostate cancer is dramatically reduced.
