The issue with increasing the dose is that you're increasing the amount that gets stored in fat, which can lead to hypervitaminosis when the stored vitamin D inevitably gets released. I don't think such a study is ethical.

The title of the thread contains 1 (one) editorialized sentence that accurately describes part of the results of the paper linked in the thread. The title includes 4 other sentences that are not editorialized in any way.

You're complaining about 1 (one) a sentence that is not even the opinion of OP, rather just a rewording of the authors' conclusion to make it more palatable to broad audiences.

Looking at the front page of /r/science right now, every single thread has an editorialized title to make it more accessible.

You're grasping at straws

OP is citing a literal conclusion to the paper.

The content of this thread is a scientific paper. Perhaps you might want to click on it

What claim? Even if we pretend that you did not imply that I am vegan and rather just went on an entirely unrelated tangent about veganism for no reason at all, your comment is void of any point that is not an easily disproven assumption.

> The reason I doubt you've looked into the matter is because the elimination of processed foods is responsible for many of the health benefits we see from alternate diets.

This is a sophomoric understanding of the state of the art of the bromatology and nutrition scholarly fields, hypothesis design in modern studies accounts for this variable and does not simply compare diets with processed products vs. without.

> This would include any carnivore diets that also eliminate processed foods

There is evidence that eliminating processed foods (if you define processed foods in the very specific framework of ultra-processed foods) leads to short-term benefits such as weight loss and improved cardiovascular health, and long-term reductions in overall mortality. When you account for that variable, I have not seen a single study whatsoever that shows short or long-term benefits to carnivore diets.

I have seen such results for plant-based or low-meat diets.
