Melanin Scholarly Articles

There were over 176,000 scholarly articles with the word “MELANIN” in them when this blog post was first published.

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 because of articles which were published in the past being digitized and added to Google Scholar. At present, there are over 461,000 scholarly articles with the word “melanin” in them on Google Scholar.

Why are scholars so interested in studying melanin? Why are so much of this planet’s resources allocated to studying melanin? If melanin is as important as these results suggest, why do you hear so little about it? Why don’t we name this area of research and put it out in the open? Shouldn’t we properly name it “melaninology” and standardize it so information about melanin is consistent?

There are over 347k scholarly articles have the word melanin in them.

Dark Matter and Dark Energy

Dark Matter is also subject to intense scientific scrutiny, as evidenced by over 670k scholarly articles involving dark matter on Google Scholar. Similarly, over 140k scholarly articles involve dark energy on Google Scholar. Interestingly enough, the terms “Dark Matter” and “Dark Energy” could just as well describe melanin. Melanin is matter, and it is dark. Likewise, melanin is energy, and it is dark. When an object interacts with photons of light and absorbs them, the object appears to be being “dark.” Conversely, when an object interacts with photons of light and reflects them, the object appears to be “light.” Photons are both a wave and a particle. “Light” colored objects are actually reflecting the photons.

We will find part of this information in the book “Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold.”

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.
