The high price of tanning booths.

Recent research links one-in-twenty cases of melanoma to indoor tanning beds.  

Studies show people who frequent indoor tanning beds have a 20% increased risk of skin cancer and this sky-rockets to 87% if they start before 35 years of age.  Young people need to know what’s at stake. 

As a practicing 
plastic surgeon in Florida, I know melanoma is a potential killer. 

There is a movement afoot to "ban the tan". Currently four states, 
New York, California, Rhode Island and Vermont, have laws banning tanning for minors.

Please heed my warning and pass it on to friends and families.
