Is your tanning salon lying to you?

 
Sources say yes. According to a congressional study, investigators discovered that when teens asked about the risks of indoor tanning, 90 percent of salons said using a tanning bed did not pose a health risk for fair-skinned girls. But that's not even the worst of it: 78 percent went so far as to claim that it would actually benefit girls--and they said that the rising rates of melanoma in young women are caused by sunscreen, not tanning. What a whopper!
 
As scientists have shown, indoor tanning increases the risk of developing melanoma and other skin cancers. But when investigators called 300 salons across the U.S., posing as teens inquiring about the safety of tanning beds, they were out-and-out lied to about the potential danger. 
 
"Tanning beds are brightly lit, cancer-causing coffins," said Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (NY), who requested the study alongside her fellow congressmen and women.
 
Tanning beds continue to be minimally regulated by the FDA, but certain states are now cracking down on salons that allow tweens and teens to tan regularly, or at all.
 
What do you think of this study, babes? Would you ever use a tanning bed?
