Sun bed ban for under-18s is being considered to reduce cases of skin cancer.

Sun bed ban for under-18s to cut cancer

Extract from the Telegraph:

"Children under 18 may be banned from using sun beds in a move designed to reduce cases of skin cancer.

The Department of Health confirmed that ministers were considering proposals to introduce an age limit, along with tighter regulation of the sun bed industry.

Another proposal being considered is a ban on coin-operated tanning salons, which campaigners say lead to over-use.

About three million people regularly use sun beds, while malignant melanoma rates have risen to 8,000 a year. With 1,800 deaths annually, skin cancer is the most common form of the disease among people aged 15 to 34."
