FDA Orders Warning Labels On Tanning Beds

The FDA has moved tanning beds from low-risk to a moderate-risk classification and will require the beds to have warning labels stating they should not be used by minors, citing data showing that 2 million teens, including 3 in 10 suburban high school girls, use tanning beds each year. What do you think?

“Why not? It worked for cigarettes.”

“If anything’s going to convince a teenager they’re not actually invincible, it’s pointing out a behavior risk considered moderate.”

Clara Thorne • Café Manager

“Did the study have any other data about what high school girls like?”
