Better regulation of tanning beds urged
Last month the Food & Drug Administration held hearings concerning the safety of tanning beds. The World Health Organization recently release a report on tanning beds, rating their cancer risk as comparable to that of tobacco smoke and asbestos. The research was published in the journal Lancet Oncology, and shows a 75% increase in risk of melanoma, the most dangerous and deadly type of skin cancer, in individuals who use tanning beds before age 30. While some regulation exists today, studies show that tanning bed operators frequently do not comply with recommended safety guidelines. Stronger regulation would results in additional warnings and better protection of minors who use tanning beds.
