No more tanning beds for minors in California, reports the Los Angeles Times. Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday signed legislation that raises the minimum age for ultraviolet tanning procedures from 14 (with parental permission) to 18, citing the risks posed by skin cancer. "If everyone knew the true dangers of tanning beds, they'd be shocked,'' said a state senator. "Skin cancer is a rising epidemic, and the leading cause of cancer death for women between 25 and 29." The law goes into effect Jan. 1.
