OPPOSITION TO BILL 83: TEENAGE TANNING PROHIBITION*

  • This action would produce the opposite effect of what the proponents intend.
    Studies have shown that teens who tan in salons are less likely to sunburn outdoors compared to non-tanners.1,2
  • 83 percent of teenagers who tan indoors prior to taking sunny vacations report that their indoor tan, combined with the proper use of sunscreen, helped them to prevent sunburn.1
  • 72 percent of teenagers who currently tan indoors say they would simply tan more aggressively outdoors or purchase home tanning units – both of which are more likely to produce sunburns – if a prohibition is enacted. If Bill 83 were enacted, sunburn incidence actually will increase, and it is likely that total UV exposure in this age group will increase. This would be hurting people, not helping them.
  • Mortality from melanoma has not changed in 20 years, according to the Canadian Cancer Society. The average male and female mortality rate in Canada from melanoma in 1985 was 2.1 per 100,000 (2.6 for males, 1.6 for females). In 2004, which is the last reported, non-estimated year, the rate was again an average of 2.1 per 100,000 people (2.9 for males and 1.5 for females).
  • Part of the rationale for this proposal is based on the incorrect statement that humans receive 80 percent of their lifetime UV exposure by age 18. That myth has been disproven. In fact, humans only get 25 percent of their lifetime UV by age 18.
