Laws against teen indoor tanning have little affect

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Teenagers who live in states with laws that restrict youth indoor tanning are just as likely to use tanning booths as teens in states without such laws.

That's according to a large new study from San Diego State University where researchers surveyed 6,000 teens from across the country.

Many indoor tanning access laws require parental consent before teens can tan.

The study also found living near a tanning salon increased the likelihood of visiting one by 40 percent.
