Extract

This study analyzes results from a survey of Colorado high school students to examine state-level associations between substance use and indoor tanning.

The World Health Organization classifies UV radiation as a group 1 carcinogen and deems the use of tanning devices that emit UV radiation a risk factor for melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.1 Nonetheless, about 1 in 5 adolescents have used a UV tanning bed in their lifetime.2
