    I'm lamenting more and more studies that do not control for real sunlight, and then use supplements processed under who knows what conditions, and then assert conclusions about their study. If I could play God for one day, I'd run my own scientific experiment on all of the science labs around the country to draw my own conclusions about each of them.

    "UV-B radiation was provided by 120-cm UV-B fluorescent tubes (UVB-313 EL, Q-lab, Cleveland, OH, USA; 280–390 nm) for 3 h each day from 11:00 to 14:00 h, which coincided with the time of greatest natural UV-B irradiation. The control groups received only visible light, and experimental groups received visible plus UV light. The peak natural dose of solar UV-B in summer at the capture site is 7.4 W m−2 at midday, and the total daily natural dose is 5100 J m−2 (Beckmann et al., 2014). We arranged our lamps so that the peak irradiance was 3.3 W m−2 UV-B at the water surface, which led to a total daily dose of 1188 J m−2. This lower dose of UV-B was chosen to better reflect the average UV-B dose across seasons (Beckmann et al., 2014). We measured sustained swimming performance of 12–15 fish from each treatment after 1 week in treatments, which was sufficiently long to observe effects of UV-B and NAC where they existed (see pilot experiment; Ghanizadeh Kazerouni et al., 2015)."

    Scott none do........and in the nutrition world it is why we have so many bad ideas built around food.

    Rigid and stuck paradigms: I got into a conversation yesterday with a person arguing how "all EMFs are harmful" (including the sun) and he knew a lot about physics and astronomy. Typically we see the opposite approach from those that are stuck in biochemistry and genetics that have a larger knowledge gap in their biophysics. Once I started talking to him about DC sunlight is atmospheric filtered and how the food chain would be destroyed if sunlight was bad for life, he dismissed it all and left the conversation abruptly. I lamented him, not because of his stubbornness, but because it shows how the higher education system has failed teaching the population what is known in science.
