The following week the bill passed on the House of Representatives floor 97-1. Indoor tanning is a known carcinogen and greatly increases one’s chance of having melanoma- every indoor tanning increases the risk of melanoma by 59%. These risks exponentially increase when one starts indoor tanning lamps at a young age. This important piece of legislation, if passed, will save lives and health care dollars in Louisiana.
