Stupid headlines are unavoidable. More than a few article writers absolutely hate the headlines the editors give to their stories. Unfortunately, writers don’t have control over headlines unless they self-publish.

My skepticism of evolutionary psychology is precisely this Zee. At least these are traceable statistically.

What’s conclusive? This is science. But I see two different results in two similar studies done in two distinct climates.

As this is regarding seasons, which involve changes of climate, there appears to be a “something” possibly there.

——

Of course. Correlation =/= causation. But it’s through correlation that it becomes possible to track causation, if any. Without correlation, there is no pattern to follow.

======

Causes? No. But this is the realm of likelihoods. A difference of 3% is statistically significant to be notable. It is enough to justify selling a pill to “fix a problem” over a sugar pill.

It’s not saying, “ALL BABIES BORN IN JANUARY WILL…” it’s saying “don’t be surprised if…”

=======

“all”. I’m saying your insertion of “all” is the problem here.

Why do doctors worldwide now recommend Vitamin D to everybody?

It’s because of these studies.

——-

A baby gets its vitamins from the mother.
Why should it be surprising that lack of Vitamin D during the last trimester would have an effect on the baby in numerous ways?

——-

Hypothesis: In Turkey, mothers get enough D.
In England, their Vitamin D intake depends on the season.
Vitamin D affects a number of body functions including brain development.

I suspect you’ll find Vitamin D is the common link you want.

=======

Sun (Vitamin D intake) –> Mom —> Fetus

 You finding the Turkey study clinched it for me by the way.
=======
  Sounds like it. Vit D allows body to use calcium. The brain utilizes calcium ion channels, as does the heart, etc.

You wanted causation. I found it.
=====
  a) Season causes different Vitamin D levels.
b) different Vitamin D levels cause effects in pregnant mothers in late trimester.
c) Those effects pass on to the baby’s developmental processes including brain, birth weight, skeletal development.
d) these fetal effects last a lifetime

 Psychiatric disorders are extreme manifestations of standard personality traits.
=======
 That’s how you link psychiatric disorders to personality.

  First, I want to nail down what may be true. False is child’s play to find.
——–
  Go to any youtube. Legions of 8 yr olds go “FAKE!”.to viral videos. child’s play.I’m looking for the parts that may be true.
=======
  I’d go through the parts you and Zee don’t like as well to fact find, but you’re both not even interested in the facts I did find and prove as reasonable.
——–
  You can stay ignorant to my research. It’s not my loss.
=======
  I learned something tonight. You didn’t.
