BC Government Bans Indoor Tanning

Indoor tanning beds raises skin cancer risk and this is the reason that doctors have asked teenagers and young adults to stop using indoor tanning facilities. The government is also found to be quite concerned about rising cases of skin cancers due to indoor beds.

The Ministry of Health has announced that the B. C. government will be banning the indoor tanning for people, who are under 18 years of age. The Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation said that the credit for the same should go to Alberta Health Services as they have tried hard to prove that indoor tanning is risky for the health of people.

The World Health Organization has also made it clear that a person, who is under 35, should not use any of the indoor tanning equipments, as it raises the risk of melanoma, deadliest skin cancer by 75%. Melanoma skin cancer is preventable and is commonly found in young adults, said experts.

Experts further asserted that now their next aim is to raise awareness among teens, so that they not only understand the risks involved in indoor tanning facilities, but they also share the same thing with their friends.

“We can use UV photography as a public effort to get kids to stop using tanning beds or staying out in the sun too long that they burn”, said Dr. Robert Dellavalle, of University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver.
