    Here you go

    With regard to the article, I'm torn. On the one hand I think solariums are dangerous, useless things that I would like to see us rid of. On the other hand I'm getting tired of being micro-managed by a nanny state.

    I agree lambjam. I agree they are dangerous but seriously- smoking is legal, drinking copious amounts of alcohol is legal (so is advertising alcohol), eating McDonalds and Hungry Jacks/KFC is legal and slowly killing us too...

    Agreed! Obesity is killing more people! Cigarettes are too! why agree tanning beds are dangerous, I suppose they may think it's easier to get rid of.

    I firmly believe that people have a right to make their own decisions.
    Nanny state much? Tell people the effects it can have and if they continue it's at their own risk.

    people are aware of the risks of using a tanning bed.

    if they are banned, surely you would get dangerous backyard/underground setups popping up everywhere....?

    if anything they need to regulate the use of it more (i dont know what the regs currently are...??) do you need to sign an indemnity waiver prior to using a sunbed?

    i feel that the sunbeds should not be made illegal - considering we (aussies) are constantly reminded about the dangers of excessive UV exposure and the cancer links, there should be some policies or something inplace to protect the business/ beauty salons that administer the procedures, to ensure that customers are aware of the risks and they wont sue the organisation for any damage caused.

    I think it's a great idea. Necessity is a push for innovation, so they might come up with safer options.
