Vote Yes on HB 421 To Prevent Skin Cancer

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I am asking for you to please vote YES on House Bill 421 to help prevent deadly skin cancer by prohibiting the use of indoor tanning devices by anyone under age 18. I understand that this bill will be heard in the Health and Human Services Committee this week.

Indoor tanning beds are carcinogens; they are in the same cancer-causing category as tobacco and asbestos. There is clear evidence demonstrating a link between indoor tanning beds and melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Risk for melanoma increases significantly the younger you start tanning, and with the number of hours, sessions, and years that indoor tanning devices are used.



I hope I can count on you to vote yes on HB 421 to help prevent skin cancer in New Mexico and protect our children.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
