Tanning Bend Restrictions to Be Voted in the House


With a unanimous vote, a House Committee approved House Bill 2896, that will restrict a teen’s access to tanning beds.

 

Joyce Brookman with Tan Republic in Bend is unhappy that the bill is moving forward, saying it should be a parent's decision about the fake tanning.  "Being a parent myself, if I am giving the go for my daughter, at age 16 or so, to do so, I think that's my choice."

 

But Bend Memorial Clinic Dermatologist Dr. Gerald Peters is happy with the bill saying the excuse that someone needs more Vitamin D from those rays is not valid.  "It's not a popular message, and I'm sorry, but the truth is, it’s a big danger and Vitamin D can be administered in an oral form that is not carcinogenic."

 

Oregon Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver says he's supporting the bill when it comes to the full House for a vote.
