Warning signs observed in tanning salons in new york city: implications for skin cancer prevention.
Summary of "Warning signs observed in tanning salons in new york city: implications for skin cancer prevention."
Use of artificial tanning may be contributing to the increased incidence of skin cancer. Federal law requires warning signs to inform consumers about health risks. All of the tanning facilities in New York City were assessed for compliance with this law during April and May 2010. More than one-third of the 224 tanning machines observed in 47 of the 85 facilities visited did not have any warning signs posted, and signs were difficult to see in many others.
