Another Reminder That Teenagers Should Really Stay Away From Tanning Salons

The World Health Organization last summer finally definitively listed sunlamps as cancer causers. The FDA will soon begin debating how to warn indoor tanners of the cancer threats posed by sunlamps. Eighteen-year-old Katie Donnar, who found a growth of early-stage melanoma on her leg while using tanning beds to prepare for the Miss Indiana pageant, claims she would have benefited from a big, fat sign. "It seemed somewhat of a myth that I was putting myself at risk," she said. "The warning label was so small, nothing to make me stop and think, 'This is real.'" [HuffPo]
