Maryland Legislation Introduced to Prohibit Indoor Tanning for Minors
Date:3/10/2010

e and re-classification of tanning beds, in June 2009 by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), to their highest cancer risk category -- 'carcinogenic to humans' -- is an indisputable signal that regulatory constraints are necessary to prevent our youth's access and active solicitation, to prevent deadly melanoma skin cancer from occurring."

Similarly, a recent study published in the International Journal of Cancer found an increase in the risk for melanoma in people who first use tanning facilities in their teen years and twenties. "Because of the unquestionable link between ultra-violet light exposure as a youth and the increase risk of developing skin cancer later in life the American Cancer Society urges the MD General assembly to pass legislation prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 from using tanning facilities," stated Bonita M. Pennino, MS, Government Relations Director for the American Cancer Society.

"A tan is a sign of injury to the skin. The thinner skin of children and teens is particularly vulnerable to damage from UV radiation. Recent studies show an alarming rise in the incidence of melanoma among young women in the U.S. since 1980, which may be attributable to the prevalence of tanning bed use by teens, reported to be up to 40%," stated Roberta Herbst, Program Manager for the Center for a Healthy Maryland.
