Re: Indoor Tanning Association - Consent, FTC File No. 082 3159 Kudos for your efforts in this important public health matter. I am a dermatologist who sees the devastating and costly effects of skin cancer every day. The evidence is clear - exposure to ultraviolet radiation causes cancer, whether it be from sunlight or from tanning beds. The tanning industry's claims that indoor tanning is safe and beneficial are deceptive and dangerous. Thank you.
