Proposed Ban on Tanning Beds Being Debated
OHIO -- A new push to keep teens out of the tanning beds is now being debated by a Senate House Committee.
The bill would ban teens under 18 from the tanning salons all together, something Jennifer Thomas agrees with.
"I have skin cancer in my family, and I know tanning causes skin cancer," she said.
Thomas is grateful her mother is alive.
"She had melanoma on her face, and they had to remove all of the skin from her nose and they had to cut out a triangle from her forehead," she said, "And flipped that down and sewed it to her nose and squeezed her forehead back together."
No picture to show, but she says you can't even tell what happened.
But the pain and grief her and her family went through was bad enough.
"It took a long time to heal, and it's not something I would want to go through," said Thomas.
And she doesn't want anyone else to go through it either, which is why she supports Senate Bill 113.
At this moment, all teens have to do is have a parent sign a waiver saying they can tan.
If the bill would pass, teens under 18 would be banned from the tanning salons all together.
"Well the science has become more conclusive about the link between tanning beds and the link between cancer and melanoma," said Jeff Stephens, American Cancer Society.
Lawmakers backing the bill, and those fighting for it say it's all about keeping teens alive.
"The pressure to be cute and tan for prom and those kind of event is really strong as a teenager so I think it's a really great idea," said Thomas.
Senate Bill 113 got its second hearing in front of the committee Wednesday.
It still has to pass the full House and Senate.
