Tanning bed dread
The bill, called the Tanning Bed Cancer Control Act, was sponsored in the House of Representatives by Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) and Charlie Dent (R-Pa.). It calls for the FDA to review the medical device classfication for tanning beds and to set standards for exposure that are based on the latest scienctific evidence linking UV exposure to cancer.
