William B Grant PhD has a PhD in physics from the University of California, Berkeley and a 30-year career in atmospheric sciences with an emphasis on developing and using laser radar (lidar) systems for remote sensing of atmospheric constituents with positions at SRI International, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory/California Institute of Technology, and NASA Langley Research Center. He turned to health research in 1996, using the ecological approach to link dietary factors to risk of Alzheimer's disease, resulting in the first paper linking diet to risk of Alzheimer's disease. His ecological study found that while animal fat was an important risk factor for coronary heart disease for men, added sugar (sweeteners) were for women. After retirement from NASA in 2004, he formed the non-profit organization Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center. He has published studies related to the association of UVB and various cancers, autism, and dental caries, and on diet and Alzheimer's disease, cancers, and rheumatoid arthritis. He has also carefully examined how observational studies and randomized clinical trials are conducted regarding vitamin D, resulting in several publications pointing out limitations of such studies and how they can be improved. Dr Grant  has over 300 scientific publications and is the Director of Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center. He receives funding from Bio-Tech Pharmacal, Fayetteville, AR, USA.
