New Jersey to Restrict Tanning Bed Usage

The Jerz might take the "T" out of GTL for minors

Small business owners in Jersey are lobbying against a bill—passed by the state’s senate last month—that would prohibit all minors from utilizing indoor tanning facilities. The supporters of the bill cite risks for melanoma and other negative health effects as a serious concern in youths partaking in indoor tanning. The Scoop thinks that kids in Jersey concerned with the potential restriction should rest easy because—regardless of how this bill fares—the sun is free and readily available. []
