VU Students Want to Ban UV Indoor Tans for Teens

Share this post

Illinois has a new teen tan ban taking effect the first of the year... here in Indiana, a couple of Region college students want to see Indiana lawmakers take similar action. The Illinois law will prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from using indoor u-v equipment, like tanning booths and sun lamps. Some students enrolled at V-U, Valparaiso University, testified Monday before a legislative panel in Indianapolis that they would like to see the Hoosier state also prohibit the use of tanning beds for those under 18.  The Indiana Health Finance Commission took testimony last month from dermatologists encouraging lawmakers to pass a law that would ban minors from using tanning beds.
