    Should tanning be outlawed?

    The poll is set up for multiple answers

    and if there is a mis-spelling - blame it on Amy!

    No. If people want to burn up their skin and look like old, wrinkled leather that's their business. :laugh:

    Many States/Commonwealths have banned tanning for teens; and Brazil has totally outlawed it.

    Since Congress knows what is best for us, we may see eventually banning in our lifetime.

    Obamacare has a tax on tanning. Remember, the power to tax is the power to control.

    I think it (like alcohol and cigarettes) should be regulated, but not necessarily outlawed.

    It should definitely be outlawed for minors - no question about it.

    If you decide to go without medical recommendations (some people have to tan for skin issues or whatever), you should have to sign a waiver that your insurance company doesn't have to pay for your skin cancer treatment later on in life. ;)

    Yep!! If you choose to override the safety knowledge that is out there, you should be on your own.

    I don't agree it should be outlawed for miners-- they spend much time in deep holes and don't get much sun.

    What I would like to see is the insurance company giving double indemnity if you are injured when wearing a seat belt.

    Yep! When my car was totaled by a 90 year old man last year, the first question from everyone from the triage nurse in the ER to the insurance adjuster later was "Were you wearing a seat belt?" I don't even start moving the car until everyone in the car is buckled.
