      Your Health 5-7-13 Tanning bed warning

      {}{}{}{}{} The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is proposing to upgrade "sunlamp products" from a low-risk, class I device to a moderate risk, class II device, and mandating that tanning devices have labeling warning against their use by young people.{} The proposed order does not prohibit the use of sunlamp products by children under the age of 18, but it provides a warning on the consequences.{}{}{} The labeling would have to include a warning that frequent users of sunlamp products should be regularly screened for skin cancer.{}{}{}{} Numerous studies have supported strong links between use of UV ray-emitting indoor tanning devices and a raised risk for skin cancer.
