The Food and Drug Administration is proposing that indoor tanning beds should carry a warning against their use in people under the age of 18 as well as reclassifying the ultraviolet lamps used in tanning beds as class II (moderate
risk) from class I (low risk).
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, people who use indoor
tanning products are at a 75% higher risk of developing melanoma. It is estimated that about 2.5 million teens use indoor tanning beds and melanoma is the most common type of cancer in adults aged 25-29.
Are you using a tanning bed? Is your teenager using a tanning bed? If so, please understand the risks from using these types of products as they increase the risk of developing melanoma, a very aggressive type of skin cancer which if not treated early, can be deadly.
