The Melanoma Foundation of New England has campaigned tirelessly against tanning beds. It created the very successful “No Tan Pledge” where thousands of students in New England high schools signed pledges not to use tanning beds before their proms and it has been active in encouraging legislation restricting tanning beds usage.
Now it has released a public service video tape describing the dangers of tanning beds. The tape explains in stark terms how tanning beds increase the risk of melanoma and skin cancer. It’s not playful. It’s a serious message about a serious issue.
If you have any doubts about the dangers of tanning beds, we encourage you to watch this short video.
