DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 10 AM

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for St. Joe and Branch counties until 10 AM.  Dense fog has already been observed in many cities in West Michigan including Kalamazoo.  The ADVISORY may be expanded to include more counties.  Burning off fog this time of year is tough thanks to a low sun angle.  Fog may linger in some locations until midday.

Gov't pushing for stronger indoor tanning guidelines

Gov
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The government is pushing for stronger warnings against indoor tanning, and urging anyone under 18 not to do it.

Research shows that more young people are being diagnosed with melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Studies show that about 2.3 million teenagers go tanning every year.

Their risk of melanoma is 75 percent higher than those who don't.

If the FDA proposal is approved, it would require tanning beds to have new labels aiming at those under 18, urging them to get regular skin cancer screenings.

A spokesman for the indoor tanning industry says it embraces safety changes, but worries they will come with unnecessary costs to businesses and the government.
