CityViews 2/15/12: The Dark Side of Tanning



Segment 1:

We dream of basking in the sun during the winter months, but tanning – say doctors – has a much darker side: disfigurement, addiction and skin cancer. A bill being considered by the Utah legislature would restrict minors from using tanning beds altogether. On Wednesday, we’ll talk about what the research shows about the health risks of tanning.

  • Dr. Robert Andtbacka, Huntsman Cancer Institute
  • Joe Levy, Smart Tan
