So Summer is hitting and I know that most of you teens are ready to hit the tanning beds and get that pretty bronze look. But for teens in California...that is not an option.
On May 2, a state Senate committee approved legislation that would make California the first state in the nation to ban teenagers from hitting the indoor tanning bed. The bill follows a statement in February by the American Academy of Pediatrics calling for a ban on ultraviolet (UV) tanning beds and similar devices for anyone under the age of 18, according to state Sen. Ted Lieu, who says because skin damage is cumulative, the more exposure to tanning beds you have early in life, the worse it is later in life.
