Indoor Tanning: The Risks of Ultraviolet Rays

SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Sunlamps and tanning beds promise consumers a bronzed body year-round, but the ultraviolet (UV) radiation from these devices poses serious health risks.

FDA is particularly concerned about children and teens being exposed to UV rays.
