Abstract

Sun Index, h/wk × % × 100 of Body Surface Area Letters Figure. Mean Sun Index for Infants Aged 1 to 12 Months To the Editor It is perhaps in the nature of scientists at the Na- 1.2 120 tional Institutes of Health (NIH) to dissect the specific causes of the reduction in national funding for the sciences, and the 1.0 100 Viewpoint by Dr Emanuel elucidated several reasons. Indi- 0.8 80 cations are that this fiscal climate change is not an aberration but the beginning of a new cycle, and NIH-funded scientists 0.6 60 must weigh their reactions. 0.4 40 First, NIH scientists must thank US taxpayers for their support and funding these past 60 years because they have 0.2 20 had their money heavily invested in science since the 1950s. 0.0 0 The US government has chosen to reduce that investment. 1369 12 Age, mo The NIH has taken part in the greatest period of scientific exploration in the nation’s history, and its scientists should There were statistically significant (P < .05) differences in mean sun index thank the taxpayers for the opportunity to serve over all of values across time points. these years.
