Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of the Indoor Tanning Association, FTC File No. 082 3159

I believe the general public is more than aware of the risks of tanning. I think the average person knows there is risk in every aspect of life. I also know I have a better chance dying by driving to a tanning salon than actually the tanning itself. I also know if I actually make it to the salon by driving, I have a better chance of having a fatal fall walking into the salon than dying from tanning. I want to know what is told to the people who have melanoma that have never been in a tanning bed. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Over the last 13 years I have ran over a half a million tanning sessions. I have never to my knowledge had a customer die or suffer from MALIGNANT melanoma. In fact of the 17000 customers I have had, in fact I have never had someone say they know someone with Malignant Melanoma.
