Vinton-Shellsburg High School students urge classmates to stop tanning


Some Eastern Iowa high school students are encouraging their classmates to stop tanning.

Students at Vinton-Shellsburg have started a campaign called "Ban the Tan". They are targeting the upcoming prom by urging students to stay away from tanning beds saying it's bad for their health.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people who begin tanning before the age of 35 have a 75% higher risk of melanoma.
