California Bans Tanning Beds For Teens

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Say bye bye to tanning beds if you are under 18.

California is the first state in the nation to ban tanning beds for children and adolescents under the age of 18. 30 other states have legislation on the books to follow suit—and we’re glad to hear it. The American Academy of Dermatology states that people who use indoor tanning beds are at a 75 percent higher risk for melanoma, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Many other medical associations and even the World Health Organization have expressed support to California’s legislature on the tanning bed ban.
