++++ : palmar creases Ankit-7 21:08, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

paler is healthier?Edit

it's controversial that being pale is healthier than being tan. I suggest that comment be removed. exposure to sun inspires production of vitamin D, and the harmful effects can be negated through various means (moderation, protection, etc.) without completely eliminating the tanning effect. so I don't think it's a fair statement to say it's healthier to be pale than tan

I agree with this. I am going to edit that specific statement, and add a general request for citations in the article.Not my leg 21:13, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Death is pretty terminalEdit

Is this really a relevent here? Sure you go pale when you're dead but is it really still a medical issue at this point? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:35, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
