FDA Warning Labels for Tanning Beds

The statistics are alarming:  32% of all 12th grade girls report using tanning beds. Because such exposure poses the highest risk for skin cancers for young persons under the age of 18, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has issued new guidelines for visible warnings on tanning beds and booths.

The FDA has reclassified the devices from ow-risk to moderate-risk devices and requires warnings that these devices put users at a greater risk of skin cancer.
