FDA Proposes Tougher Warnings for Tanning Beds
Date:5/7/2013

dations, one expert said the link between indoor tanning and skin cancer is clear.

Dr. Doris Day, a dermatologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, applauded the AAP's move to support the tanning bed ban for minors.

"A review of seven studies found a statistically significant increase in the risk of melanoma in those who had been exposed to UV radiation from indoor tanning before the age of 35," said Day. "Studies have demonstrated that exposure to UV radiation during indoor tanning damages the DNA in the skin cells."

Day also said that "on an average day in the United States, more than 1 million people tan in tanning salons. Of the customers, nearly 70 percent are girls and women, primarily 16 to 29 years old."
