Re: Commercial tanning salons not the culprit (letter of the day)
The Canadian Cancer Society agrees with the Joint Canadian Tanning Association (JCTA) that any consideration being given to banning the use of tanning salons by young people should be based on strong scientific facts. After careful review of the evidence by our experts, here are the facts:
With the health of Islanders as our primary concern and based on these solid scientific facts and statistics, the Canadian Cancer Society, PEI Division will continue to call on our government to bring in legislation banning the use of tanning beds by anyone under the age of 18.
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
