645 words - 3 pages

Abstract: A brief analysis of two papers regarding the effects of vitamin D on schizophrenia patients. For the purposes of this brief, I will compare a popular paper, “The Effect of Vitamin D on Psychosis and Schizophrenia” (Greenblatt, 2016) with a scholarly paper, “The Relationship between Symptom Severity and Low Vitamin D Levels in Patients with Schizophrenia” (Bulut et al., 2016), not reporting on them.

Additionally, the author of the popular article seems to primarily concern himself with quantitative tests, such as lab result levels of patients and whether or not the patient had schizophrenia, whereas the authors of the scholarly paper take a more...
