ANNAPOLIS - That beautiful bronze glow isn't the only thing people are getting from tanning salons, a legislative committee was told Wednesday.
Premature aging, allergic reactions and even skin cancer can be the result of too much soaking beneath the ultraviolet rays of a tanning booth, said Dr. Angela Peterman, an Annapolis dermatologist.
"There is no such thing as a healthy tan," Peterman told the House Economic Matters Committee.
Del. John P. Donoghue, D-Washington, said he wants to make people aware of those risks. He is sponsoring legislation that would require tanning fans to sign a written statement acknowledging "certain facts and warnings" about the use of tanning devices.
