Genius idea: FDA Hopes to Regulate Your Tan

Tan ban.When the Founding Fathers talked about maximum freedom and personal responsibility, of course that never applied to a seeking out a healthy glow.It’s not only beach bunnies, longing for a touch of Vitamin D, and New Jerseyites that hit up tanning salons in the Winter Season.

15 minutes here and there spent under a UVB light has been proven to help those suffering from skin disorders such as eczema, keratosis, acne and the heartbreak of psoriasis.

Of course, instead of letting the American public do their own research and draw their own conclusions on what is best for them and their birthday suit, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking to add more restrictions on the use of tanning beds in the Land of the Free.

If the FDA gets their way, before one can partake in this $3 Billion industry, they’ll need to show proof of id (as those under the age of 18 will be banned from any and all tanning bed use, with or without parental permission) and will have to sign a form acknowledging that they are aware of the risks associated with tanning beds.

That’s what we always think about when we go to get our GTL on---the paperwork!Just like with everything else in life.

Any tanning salon that doesn’t check id, or offer and file the risk acknowledgement form would be fined and face civil penalties.

This move by the FDA is interesting considering the fact that 42 States already have their own regulations on tanning. Is it really necessary for the Federal Government to add their own layer of bureaucracy and fines?

Especially when it comes down to something as simple as your skin?

    Eventually, souvenir jackets (also known as cheap christian louboutin sukajan in Japanese) evolved past its replica yeezy shoes post-World War II origins. The jackets became fashionable, popping up not only on the streets of Harajuku and beyond cheap toms shoes as a fashionable accessory, but in high fashion along cat walks, and more. The souvenir jacket, while disappearing from high fashion these past couple fake rolex sale seasons obviously, has remained a mainstay in day-to-day style.
