Registered tanning salons more common than other businesses in Florida

In Florida, there is one tanning salon for every 15,113 people and 1.16 tanning facilities for every 50 squares miles, according to a research letter by Sonia A. Lamel, M.D., of the University of Miami, and colleagues. Indoor tanning is linked to melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancer development, especially if people tan before the age of 35 years.
