lycopene, methylation, uvb phototherapy
I was reading https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25830654/, "Correlation between Reversal of DNA Methylation and Clinical Symptoms in Psoriatic Epidermis Following Narrow-Band UVB Phototherapy" and wondered if it might not make sense to try to replicate the uvb phototherapy benefits by finding a sun blocker for UVA only and just getting uvb from the sun. After a lot of looking, one promising cheap source emerged but it's a little weird: lycopene. One of the best natural sources? Tomato paste. Also has vitamin A and C.
Kind of curious whether lying in the sun covered in tomato paste might be beneficial to skin health / health generally, as silly as it sounds?
