Researchers list reasons why the U. S. Surgeon General should announce that UV tanning causes skin cancer

8 abril 2015

A July, 2014 Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer by acting Surgeon General Dr. Boris Lushniak points out that indoor tanning is «strongly associated with increased skin cancer risk,» but stops short of reporting that tanning causes cancer. A new opinion article points out that UV tanning meets the same criteria as smoking as a cause of cancer and argues that announcing the causality could save lives.
