Occasionally, I take time to surf through the topics of conversation currently populating the indoor tanning “boards.” Online discussions are healthy, yet some roll into “I can’t believe you don’t see my side,” and then, the conflict begins. Seldom do I take the opportunity to weigh in on the topic, knowing that you can’t win an internet “discussion” and the back-and-forth can go on ad nauseam. However, one subject came up that I could not ignore; whether or not pregnant women should tan indoors.
While there is no federal or state regulation that prohibits pregnant women from tanning indoors, it’s up to you to decide whether to allow it.
