“Warning: That Tan Could Be Hazardous” by Sabrina Tavernise appeared on New York Times, in the January 10, 2015. In her article, Tavernise insists that indoor tanning provides people with skin cancer which might bring them to having melanoma (the most serious type of skin cancer). Sabrina Tavernize says that many factors, including genetics, are at play with skin cancer, one of the largest is the ultraviolet light, which people get during tanning process, it exposures its non burning ray to getting melanoma. Teenage girls from different states, who were intervied said, that tan skin makes them feel “… more confident and more comfortable...,” when they walk around, but they don’t realize what the risk is.

I never felt the need to go to the extreme and do something to my skin that may bring unfavorable consequences later.

Multiple states have banned indoor tanning and a number of states have strengthened their constraints on minors tanning in their salons.
