Gov't pushing for stronger indoor tanning guidelines

Updated: Saturday, August 3, 2013 |
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.
