As many Americans head to the beach this weekend, the country's dermatologists have launched a major campaign against indoor tanning.
This is actually the peak season for tanning salons, with graduations and weddings, as well as the desire to jump-start that summer bronze, prompting those who want to look sun-kissed to seek a shortcut. Every day, about one million people go to tanning salons. Most are young women ages 16 to 29. And as this new campaign emphasizes, the habit is putting them at much greater risk of skin cancer.
