19 Jun: Sarlo Urges Caution For Teen Tanners

TRENTON – Senator Paul A. Sarlo, a Senate sponsor of the bill to restrict the use of tanning salons by teenagers, today said its enactment will help fight skin cancer for generations to come.

“Like smoking in earlier generations, young people didn’t really know the cancer-causing dangers of over-exposure to ultraviolet rays until fairly recently,” said Senator Sarlo, D-Bergen, Essex and Passaic. “With the medical evidence now convincing, we need this legislation to back up our warnings to young people who sometimes believe they are immune to danger.”
