Comments:I believe the FTC is wrong in their remarks and actions concerning the ITA. First if there is a true medical or scientific study performed by professionals in the field, then why can't the ITA or any industry use those findings in advertising, there is evidence on both sides regarding the benefits of tanning indoors. Also those companies and the cosmetic industry that sells Sun-Block use studies to promote their products, I do not see the FTC taking action against any of these organizations, and why is that ? The FTC should not decided which studies are correct and which are not, since the FTC is not in the science or medical fields the commission does not have the expertise to decide which studies are correct on the issue. The one undisputed fact is that indoor tanning is no more dangerous than tanning outside, or working outside, walking outside, sitting outside, and enjoying the outdoors, the effects of the NATRUAL Sun, have the same effects as Indoor Tanning.
