I have been reading a lot recently about the increase in malignant melanoma,in the under 30s and the possible link between them and sun beds indeed this was one of the reasons why I now promote safe fake tanning. Regulation in this industry can only be welcomed.
The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers has also in addition called for all tanning salon operators to provide protective eyewear to all salon users free of charge.Although sun bed users are often aware of the damages of skin cancer  more needs to be done to raise the awareness of the risk of conjunctivitis, cataracts and uveal melanoma, which can result from sunbed use.
