Could Tanning Beds Be Outlawed For Minors?
The Mayo Clinic is concerned about an eight fold increase in melanoma skin
cancer among young women. And it's from tanning bed usage.
Mary Duh with Mayo in La Crosse says going to a tanning bed just once increases your chances of getting melanoma by 20 percent. A state Senate committee in Illinois has already approved a plan that would keep anyone under 18 out of a tanning salon, even if they have permission from their parents or other adults.
