Tanning salons may not be telling you everything you need to know about the risks of indoor tanning, according to a new study published in the journal Pediatrics from Children's Hospital in Bronx, New York.
Researchers found that some tanning salons may be allowing kids as young as 10 years old to tan. Despite FDA guidelines, the study found that they may not be enforced nationwide if there's no state regulations to back it up.
In the study, 250 tanning salons were polled about teen tanning and 43 percent of them claimed there were no risks tied to indoor tanning while 80 percent said indoor tanning could prevent future sunburns.
The researchers recommend an increase of FDA regulations of underage tanning since getting laws passed in each individual state is often ineffective.

Obama is not claiming final victory over extremists who still seek to kill Americans and other Westerners. Instead, he is refocusing the long struggle against terrorism that lies ahead, steering the United States away from what he calls an equally frightening threat — a country in a state of perpetual war.
