Brussels, 10th of October 2018 – Today the French health agency ANSES (Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire
de l’alimentation, de l’environnement et du travail) published an opinion asking for a total ban of sunbeds in
France based on the current scientific state-of-the-art stating that there is strong evidence linking sunbed use
to melanoma and that there is no evidence for positive effects such as the generation of Vitamin D through
artificial UV exposure.
