Tan With Caution

The latest move by the US Food and Drug Administration to control the rising numbers of skin cancer targets tanning beds. The governmental firm announced today that it will now require sunlamps used in salons to hold a  “black box” warning against children under the age of 18, according to reports.

The Food and Drug Administration has regulated tanning machines for over 30 years, but for the first time the agency is requiring manufacturers to warn consumers about the cancer risks of indoor tanning, added reports.

Additionally, the FDA is requiring manufacturers to meet certain design and safety requirements, including timers and limits on the radiation levels they produce.
