Tanning is back.
That’s good news for people who want to show off their skin to impress their friends, but there are also concerns about skin cancer and skin diseases, including skin cancer in the eyes, mouth and throat, as well as other diseases.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said it is not aware of any confirmed cases of melanoma since January 2016, and that the number of melanomas in the U.S. has dropped.
However, melanoma is still the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the country, behind lung cancer.
The melanoma numbers have increased steadily in recent years.
Last summer, the CDC warned that tanning is still a leading cause of skin cancer deaths.
However the U,S.
tanning industry did not fully take its warning seriously.
In September, the FDA banned the sale of all tanning beds and tanning equipment, and some tanning facilities have banned customers from using the equipment.
