Study: Indoor Tanning Increases Risk Of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
A new study being published in the British Medical Journal estimates that 170,000 new cases every year of non-melanoma skin cancer can be tied to indoor tanning beds.
The study found that people who used the beds before the age of 25 had significantly higher chances of contracting the ailment than people who never use indoor tanning.
Eleni Linos, MD, DrPH, an assistant professor of dermatology at UCSF and senior author of the study said, “The numbers are striking – hundreds of thousands of cancers each year are attributed to tanning beds.”
Some states have begun looking into banning teens from going to tanning salons.
