Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of the Indoor Tanning Association, FTC File No. 082 3159
I have two comments: 1. Use some common sense. Did God create the sunshine (UV light) which gives the earth solar energy and makes all things grow. Then create humans which every single cell in our body has a vitamin D receptor, then expect us to go crawl under a rock and hide from it. I dont think so. FTC is supposedly designed to keep unfair and untrue claims made. Yet, the pharmaceutical companies can make up any kind of report they choose and run it all over the tv and print because they spend so much advertising dollars. any one who has done any research on cancer will state the importance of Vit D levels and the best way to obtain high levels is with moderate UV light exposure. 2. Yes, a sunburn is damaging to the skin. you can certainly obtain a large dose of Vit. D without over exposure. A moderate tan does protect you from sunburn That is the facts God created us this way. Stop allowing money to dictate what is fair and unfair. Being exposed to outdoor UV light is best. However, what happens when the the body is not in an area where they can obtain sunshine year round. The vit D levels drop below healthy levels. 3. the problem is we over do everything from the way we report the truth, that is backed up with who pads the pockets the best And 50% of the people dont know what moderation is Whether it be sunshine, eating or excercise. If the public would tan in moderation whether in or out doors to keep a light base tan, they would not be as many sunburns and everyone would be healthier, which would cut down on medical costs Oh I am sorry, that would be a bad thing for the medical and pharmacy industry. Please use common sense.
