    It’s raining today. Guess I’m screwed.

      Explains why I feel so energized when standing in the sun. Further proof to stay away from sun screen.

    That won’t work. The solution??? Stuff a twinkie in your mouth while
    standing on one leg and having your stereo belt out “James Dean” by the Eagles.

    I ate 2500 bananas, but only one time. George Kennedy bet me I couldn’t do it. We were on a prison road gang in the deep South.

    WTF??? How did y’all get past the first paragraph of this BS?

    “may offer a higher level of protection to adults and children than eating 2,500 bananas or a kilogram of Brazil nuts per day!”

    Eating 2500 bananas or a kilo of nuts in a day offers no protection – it’d most likely be fatal in itself, if not the first day then certainly soon.

    I wonder if it is better to do it naked so you get more NIR light waves?

      You missed the part where it said the light needs to hit your retinas.

      It’s a visual thing, not a skin thing. But if you must, you can stand outside buck naked.

      Yes. Minimal clothing will distribute the NIR radiation to far more cells. I also make sure to face the sun for a bit and then to turn away to get direct radiation over as much of my body as possible.

      Michael’s comment is incorrect. Getting the NIR directly to the cells is what produces the melatonin. Look up papers like “Melatonin and the Optics of the Human Body” to get a more complete picture.

    Not necessarily . I worked outside 45 years from 7 am to 4pm. I still ended up with throat cancer

      Improving odds from 1:2 to 1:10 does not remove the chance of cancer completely it just improves the odds. I guess you were one of the unlucky ones.

      Since you got throat cancer, did you smoke at any time? That and possibly other factors would have made chances worse for you.

    Early to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

    The question here is who pays these idiots to produce this crap ????? We already know that moronic writers write this crap to get paid.

    Just embarrassing themselves now

    Was I the only one who expected intelligent comments here?

    Please clarify if the sun or the human body’s circadian rhythm is the variable. The article states: “…is tied to the body’s natural circadian rhythm, with production peaking in the early morning. ”
    This statement makes me question the “morning” connection. The article makes it seem like the morning sunlight has a special property of NIR light, but the above quote from the article leads me think that it is actually the human body’s timing that optimizes the NIR. If one’s circadian rhythm is counter to the norm and they wake up at 6pm at night, would that person be just as capable of absorbing the right amount from the sun at 6:30pm b/c their body’s circadian rhythm is in peak mitochondrial melatonin creation mode? Please clarify if the sun or the body is the variable.
