Dermatologists Target Tanning Dangers for Teens | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

The American Academy of Dermatologists has introduced a public service announcement campaign to educate teens about the risk of tanning beds. The campaign includes television, radio, and print ads.

One study from the Archives of Dermatology found that 47 percent of students at one university had used indoor tanning beds in 2001. Ninety percent of those surveyed said they were unaware of the dangers of tanning beds.

Another study found that frequent tanners developed withdrawal-like symptoms after ceasing use.
