Nearly 30 million Americans who visit tanning salons each year may do so because they believe they look better with a tan. In fact, they are putting themselves at risk for skin cancer and premature skin aging.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a proven human carcinogen, and is linked with a higher risk of all forms of skin cancer, including potentially deadly melanoma.
Join us in our efforts to stamp out this dangerous behavior. Pledge to not tan indoors this winter. Together we can reduce the incidence of skin cancer and promote healthy skin behaviors!
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a proposed order that, if finalized, would significantly strengthen tanning bed regulation. This would be a meaningful step forward in the fight against skin cancer.
How You Can Help: Ask your representatives to support the FDA’s effort to toughen tanning bed regulations.Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) is asking his colleagues in the US Senate to sign a letter to the FDA. The letter urges the agency to finalize the proposed order, and supports further action that would ban minors from using indoor tanning beds. Contact your senators and ask them to sign Senator Reed’s letter.
