Newcastle University study

    Hi all, I came across this the other day and I don't know where to start:

    - maybe the solar lamp that mimics the sun
    - that UV penetrates deep into the skin
    - that the sunscreen industry should use the study to block all types of solar light

    https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200123095834.htm

    Should I give them a call and find out about the spectral analysis of the lamp? (My guess is that it probably doesn't have enough IR-A and may even have some UV-C)

    This seems like misinformation, so what does a mitochondriac do in the face of this type of thing?

    Clearly this study was sponsored by those with a vested interest

    I sent an email expressing interest in the lamp used for the study

    Here is the spectrum used in their "Solar Simulator"

    Here is the spectrum of the real sun.

    In short, the two are radically different in their spectral distribution, irradiance, and, most likely, flicker intensity.
