Tanning themselves to death: a new teen fad.
Mo Med. 2012 May-Jun; 109(3):166-70.MM

Abstract

Incidence rates of melanoma continue to rise, especially in young women, despite the enormous body of evidence that identifies ultraviolet radiation as a skin carcinogen. It is time for a change in societal norms, an increase in counseling of young adults about the risks of indoor tanning facilities, and to prevent young adults from tanning by introducing new legislation.
