- Study Links Skin Cancer to Tanning Bed Use
Reuters reports that women who used tanning salons during their youths have an increased risk for skin cancer. Researchers at HarvardMedicalSchool followed 730,000 nurses for 20 years for the study. The data from the study associated the use of tanning beds with a higher skin cancer risk, especially basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer.
Women who used tanning salons from high school to age 35 are 15 percent more likely to be diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma than non-users. An important finding from the study suggests that the risk of cancer increases the earlier a person starts tanning. Women who used tanning salons at least 7 times a year in high school and college were 73 times more likely to get skin cancer then non-users.
Researchers from Harvard Medical School want the public to be warned against using tanning salons.

They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.

The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
