ITA to AMA: Taxing tanning sends wrong health message to teens

re cancer deaths are due to insufficient UV exposure (30,000) than to too much UV exposure. Further, to date, no well-designed studies support the connection between melanoma and UV exposure from tanning beds.

"The researchers and editorialists also fail to shed light on why males get significantly more skin cancer than females and why the melanoma death rate among women aged 20-54 is actually lower now than it was in 1970. The investigators keep us in the dark about why melanoma is more common in people who work indoors than in those who work outdoors and why melanoma most commonly appears on parts of the body that do not receive regular exposure to UV light.

"Most importantly, the research fails to address key public health questions about UV exposure: How much total exposure to UV light do teens receive and do teens use the right kind and amount of sunscreen outdoors?" Humiston said.
