TORONTO, Oct. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Ontario's doctors applaud the Ontario
legislature for unanimously passing the Skin Cancer Prevention Act.
This legislation will save lives by ensuring generations of young
people are protected from the harmful effects of tanning beds. Since
2010, Ontario's doctors have been sounding the alarm about the dangers
of tanning beds, especially for children. Ultra violet (UV) rays in
tanning beds are as dangerous as the UV rays from the sun, and exposure
to these rays drastically increases the chances of getting skin cancer.
Ontario's doctors congratulate all parties for their support of this
important health initiative.
