Warning About Risks of Indoor Tanning


Doctors also need to warn parents and teenagers about the dangers of indoor tanning, according to a new study in the journal Pediatrics.

Researchers found one in four teenage girls use tanning beds, even though they have an increased risk for skin cancer.

Indoor tanning is blamed for 25 percent of melanomas in young women.
Experts recommend that tanning discussions become a regular part of yearly doctor visits.
