  • Availability of tanning salons in Ontario relative to indoor tanning policy (2001-2017). [Journal Article]
    Prev Med Rep 2018; 12:40-45McWhirter JE, Byl S, … Papadopoulos A
  • Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from indoor tanning equipment is a known cause of skin cancer; however, little is known about how the availability of indoor tanning salons has been impacted by indoor tanning legislation, including Ontario's Skin Cancer Prevention Act: Tanning Beds (SCPA). Tanning salon listings were obtained from the 2001 to 2017 editions of InfoCanada's Ontario Business to Business S…
  • Prevalence and Correlates of Skin Cancer Screening Among Indoor Tanners and Nontanners. [Journal Article]
    JAMA Dermatol 2018; 154(5):554-560Heckman CJ, Handorf E, Auerbach MV
  • CONCLUSIONS: Few ITs have been screened for SC, although SC rates are higher than among NTs. It is not surprising that SC screening is associated with SC risk factors (eg, family history of SC and age) among ITs. However, some unscreened ITs may be putting themselves at even greater risk of SC by also being more likely to use low SPF sunscreen than ITs who have been screened for SC.
  • Examining Dermatologist Use and Opinions of Ultraviolet Radiation for Cosmetic and Medical Purposes. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2018; 11(2):41-46Sampson BP, Secrest AM, … Geller AC
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings directly contradict the assertion that dermatologists use ultraviolet radiation for cosmetic purposes or routinely refer patients to tanning salons. This study underscores the complex nature of ultraviolet radiation, as dermatologists infrequently utilize ultraviolet radiation for medical purposes and unanimously support restrictive legislation. In addition, these dermatologists counsel against cosmetic tanning and list tanning bed use among their highest concerns with regard to the health of pediatric patients.
  • Content analysis of Twitter chatter about indoor tanning. [Journal Article]
    Transl Behav Med 2019; 9(1):41-47Waring ME, Baker K, … Pagoto SL
  • Twitter may be useful for learning about indoor tanning behavior and attitudes. The objective of this study was to analyze the content of tweets about indoor tanning to determine the extent to which tweets are posted by people who tan, and to characterize the topics of tweets. We extracted 4,691 unique tweets from Twitter using the terms "tanning bed" or "tanning salon" over 7 days in March 2016.…
  • Tanning and Teens: Is Indoor Exposure the Tip of the Iceberg? [Journal Article]
    Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 2017; 26(8):1170-1174Hay JL, Riley KE, Geller AC
  • Because of recent state regulations and the reduced availability of free-standing tanning salons, indoor tanning (IT) prevalence is beginning to decline. This may lead to unintended consequences, such as increases in outdoor intentional tanning. We advance a series of research directions to track and intervene to address all forms of intentional tanning. First, we advocate for enforcement of IT r…
