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.

Guests:

  • MaryAnn Gerber, Sol Survivors
  • Dr. Robert Andtbacka, Huntsman Cancer Institute
  • Joe Levy, Smart Tan
