Update: Since we first began documenting facts about melanin the number of scholarly articles has increased. In two three years’ time the number has increased by over 89,000 articles. That is almost 30,000 articles a year. The growth apparently is due to articles which were published at some time in the past being added to Google… More FACT: There are over 176,000 scholarly articles with the word “MELANIN” in them.
