In the Dark About Tanning Risks

Published July 6, 2011

Artificial tanning–supposedly engaged in by Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, also known as Princess Kate, and her sister Pippa Middleton–causes cancer, according to a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania.

The woman’s lawsuit alleges the tanning bed company failed to warn her of the cancer risks. She says she has used tanning beds since she was 16. She is now 29 and has been diagnosed with melanoma on her left leg, breast, and torso.
