Comments:Hooray!! Finally there is recognition from authoritative bodies and will be made public knowledge what dermatologists have known for years that UV radiation (the sun) from tanning booths causes skin cancer!! Our country is in a health care crisis. If we want to cut down health care spending, we need to reduce the #1 cancer in humans: skin cancer. This is a victory first step in doing so. I appreciate the FTC's efforts in helping to stop the tanning parlors from false advertising and claims (get a "healthy" tan, get all your vitamin D with tanning, etc, etc.). Public safetly should be #1 priority; as we know tanning causes skin cancer, including melanoma the most deadly type of skin cancer, advanced wrinkling and leathery skin, eventually closing all such tanning parlors should be the next goal! Thank you.
