There is a new law prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 to use a tanning bed. The law became effective on August 16th this year. The law previously banned anyone under the age of 17, but as of August 16th it has changed to anyone under 18. This law comes in light of all the research done about cancerous cells formed by UV Rays. Although the warmth may be relaxing when in a tanning bed, the damage to the skin can be life threatening.
