N.J. Teen Indoor Tanning Rates Stable Following Enactment of Under Age 17 Ban
Research from Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and Rutgers School of Public Health shows no significant decline in indoor tanning rates among children under age 17 following a ban on such use in New Jersey enacted in 2013. Lead author and Rutgers Cancer Institute behavioral scientist Elliot J. Coups, PhD, associate professor of medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, says the finding underscores a need for continued surveillance.
