Everyday Health - FDA Proposes Cancer Warnings on Tanning Beds - Amir Khan

 – May 6, 2013  ––

While the proposal would not ban teenagers from using the products, it would require the cancer warnings on all machines, something Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology and assistant professor of dermatology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, said is a step in the right direction.
