Tanning Bed Regulation Heats Up

FDA, lawmakers want to limit UV ray exposure, improve warning labels ,,,,

TUESDAY, Feb. 9 (HealthDay News) -- Tanning beds -- America's latest health scourge -- could come under tighter regulation soon, as a result of studies linking them to cancer.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and members of Congress are scrambling to protect tanning salon patrons -- young women, in particular -- from exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

"There's a growing recognition that, number one, this is potentially dangerous, and number two, this is really affecting the most vulnerable population," predominantly young women, explained Dr. William Ting, a private practice dermatologist in San Ramon, Calif., who has studied the melanoma risk related to indoor tanning.

The issue grabbed headlines last summer after the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer upgraded tanning beds from "possibly carcinogenic to humans" to "carcinogenic to humans."
