Tanning beds do not emit 10 to 15 times the radiation. A tanning bed emits about what you would get standing at the equator at noon. And, because of controlled exposure times, it's a much smarter dose than the unpredictable outdoor sun. Intensity x time equals dose. Light photons are the same; indoors or out.
Tanning beds ARE regulated by the FDA, as are exposure schedules. There are not 50,000 tanning salons in the US. There are 14,000.
