Meet Bloomberg | Tanning

All it is, is telling the dangers.

— Michael Bloomberg, CBS 2 NY, October 13, 2013

A Crusade Against Tanning Salons

In one of his last major initiatives before leaving office, Bloomberg launched an offensive to monitor New York City tanning salons and alert customers of the hazards of skin cancer from overexposure to UV radiation. As one columnist asked, with the dangers of tanning beds not exactly being new news, why was this initiative needed when so many more serious challenges face New Yorkers each day?
