Sunbeds Should Be Closed Down
All tanning salons at council owned swimming baths and other sports arenas should be closed down on public safety grounds. The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority says sunbeds increase the risk of skin cancer and are a danger to the public.
Last Autumn the authority recommended that an age limit of 18 be set for those using sunbeds. Last December, one of the leading chain of fitness centres in Sweden, SATS closed all tanning solariums on its premises.
