The American Academy of dermatology believes that 28 million Americans use indoor tanning salons each year over 2 million those users being teenagers.

There are now 6 states with laws banning indoor tanning for minors and an additional 29 other states considering legislation regarding restricting or prohibiting sun bed use by minors.

In addition, the FDA has proposed raising tanning beds to a class II level which would mean stricter regulations on sun bed use and better information would be made available by tanning salon owners warning the public of the increased health risks associated with tanning bed use.
