It's winter here in Midwest America. I haven't gotten exposure to sunshine in months, and my skin got quite pale. However, lately I've been
sitting in front of the fireplace daily, due to the cold, and it appears my skin is getting slightly more tan.
Now, I know people will claim to be "experts" and mention UV-rays and so on, but I'm one of the people who think the medical field is still very
primitive, and in the future will be laughed at the way we laugh at blood-letting.
My theory is this:
The sun is a big ball of fire. Smaller fires are similar, except a smaller size, yet closer distance. Isn't it possible that I'm getting a slight
tan from sitting in front of the fireplace lately? In addition, could I also be receiving small amounts of Vitamin D from a simple fire?
Maybe fire itself has nutrients that humans can absorb through exposure to the light-rays of a natural fire. Humans have evolved with fire, since our
hominid ancestors had bonfires before modern humans fully evolved. Our species is unique in that way, among other ways of course.
I really think that there is a lot we still don't understand, about fire, human evolution, and energy & nutrient sources.
