The Melanoma Letter Winter 2013, Vol. 31, No. 3

In this issue of The Melanoma Letter, Alan Geller and Drs. Hawryluk and Fisher summarize the research published over the past two decades (with emphasis on the wave of convincing studies in the past three years) that has provided compelling evidence of tanning’s link to melanoma and other skin cancers. Given what now seems to be incontestable proof that indoor tanning significantly raises melanoma risks, the authors argue for increased regulation over the tanning industry — above all, limiting access to those who are most vulnerable, our youth.
