Lightbulb Twisted Quote?

My guess is that her words were "twisted" (or taken out of context) by the reporter. That's why (IMHO) it isn't a good idea (no matter how well intentioned) to talk to the media.

Local business owner: Tanning beds are safe
Surgeon general warns tanners after spike in deadly melanoma.

We follow all the regulations and rules. This is a safe environment,” she said. “If kids tan outside it’s not controlled, so that’s where I think our safety inside tanning salons is a lot safer.”

Re: Twisted Quote?

I don't think this lady has ever read a single piece of Smart Tan literature. Too bad. Never use the word "safe" and "tanning beds" together!

What the ____do you expect her to say? That it is unsafe? That it will kill you? You and people like you are what is wrong with this industry. Smart Tan hasn't done a ____thing to help this industry. They are just a bunch of apologists. If you REALLY think that indoor tanning is unsafe then you should quit being a pretender and get out of the industry.

Re: Twisted Quote?

I think I'm a little more concerned with this quote over hers:

The surgeon general’s “call to action” plan is part of a broader push this year by government officials and public health advocates to raise awareness on what they say has become a major public health problem.

With all the healthcare problems that we have in this country, he has decided that indoor tanning is a MAJOR HEALTH issue? 8,000 people a year die from melanoma. Even if you could blame 100% of those totally on indoor tanning, that is not even in the top 50 causes of death in the US today. This guy is whacked,...or he has an agenda.

This quote by a salon owner in Texas probably won't end well.

Tanning Salon Owner "Tanning Prevents More Than 100 Diseases"

While the claims are exaggerated, I applaud the owner for having the guts to say something positive about the industry.

That may break every "smart tan" rule but what the industry needs more than anything right now is some backbone; this guy seems to have a little.

Notice that the Dermatologist, chimes the exact same talking points that the whole medical industry does? I am surprised he didn't throw in the "75% more likely" comment. Is it any wonder the dermatology industry is the fastest growing in the medial industry?
