So vitamin D inhibits uncoupling proteins....this makes perfect sense!

    So it seems natural and NECESSARY for your vit D levels to drop in the winter, to enable uncoupling proteins to work their magic in the cold. BOOM!

    As a side note, forgive me if this has been discussed. My search didn't bring up anything on this topic.

    Non sequitur. It doesn't matter that VDR-null mice have their furniture always on. The question is if they are better adapted to cold exposure than normal mice. Sincerely I doubt it since I suppose that I am not the only one keeping high levels of 25-OH-vitD year round (greater than 50ng/ml) at the same time that keeping CTing (well, I still do mostly DIY-ICE-vest-2.0, drive with AC full blast toward me and keep heat-off at my office) year round too. Brown fat turns on without problems as far as I can see.

    I think prudent to follow Vieth's hypothesis while not falsified.
