Teens in tanning beds: Yay or nay?

New York is currently considering a law that would ban minors from using tanning beds. Are you in favor?

I would totally support that law, tans are better to be faux.

i think this would be a good law because tanning beds are unhealthy for people to use and sometimes when you over tan you look terrible so its not like its helping you anyway

did you know that skin cancer is most likely to happen to women how had more than 2 bad sun burns when under the age of 18. tanning bed are not a good subsitute either!

YAY! I would encourage other states to do this as well! Things like melanoma and skin cancer could start at an early age, and girls might get "addicted" to tanning. Tanning at any age isn't the best, but by not allowing girls under 18 to tan might help them realize why the law has been made and how tanning beds can harm them, and also might influence their decision of wanting to later in lif or not. I hope this could be made a law in other states, too! Yay for NY! Smile

I totally agree with this law. Not just because both of my parents have had melanoma and have always pushed me to wear sunscreen and not stay in the sun to much - even though i naturally tan easily, but also because girls should be happy with their natural skin. They shouldn't try to make themselves reach up to what societies standards of 'beauty' are. You're beautiful without fake tans. In the end you'll regret the hours of tanning you spent, because eventually it could lead to foot long scars from melanoma cancer.

There are ways to get a glow without using tanning beds. You can get a spray tan, or you can go swimming for two hours. I think that tanning beds are a waste of time and money, and have completely unreasonable health risks.
Then again, that's just me.

i don't think teens should be aloud in tanning beds.i think any one 15 or younger should not be aloud.
