“…these elements are involved in everything from transporting oxygen and releasing hormones to regulating blood pressure and maintaining bone strength. They also give a burst of color when they are added to a fireworks recipe.”
My comment: An epigenetic (above the genome) trap links the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light when it is slowed on contact with water. The epigenetic trap causes the light-induced de novo creation of amino acids. See: Common origins of RNA, protein and lipid precursors in a cyanosulfidic protometabolism
The light-induced de novo creation of amino acids is subsequently linked to our enhanced color perception via nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate all of our cell types in all of our tissues from the cell types of other species via our pheromone-controlled physiology of nutrient-dependent reproduction.
For example see Dobzhansky (1973): “…the so-called alpha chains of hemoglobin have identical sequences of amino acids in man and the chimpanzee, but they differ in a single amino acid (out of 141) in the gorilla” (p. 127).

…deterioration of the olfactory repertoire occurred concomitant with the acquisition of full trichromatic color vision in primates.
The underlying adaptive context of possible selective pressures acting on olfactory receptor genes is not known but may be linked to food (Matsui et al. 2010; Jaeger et al. 2013; McRae et al. 2013) and health (Spehr et al. 2003; Griffin et al. 2009; Neuhaus et al. 2009; Pluznick et al. 2009; Gu et al. 2014; Busse et al. 2014).

Excerpt (from my comment):
Is what’s being elucidated the bottom-up epigenetic effects on stochastic gene expression via chromatin remodeling, which is controlled by the top-down epigenetic effects of pheromones on reproduction in species from microbes to man?
My comment: Enjoy the “fireworks” when someone tries to tell an evolutionary theorist about how RNA-mediated cell type differentiation links ecological variation via food odors and pheromones to our ecologically adapted ability to enjoy celebrations enhanced by pyrotechnic displays.
The understanding of pyrotechnics also links quantum physics and biophysically constrained chemistry on this planet to the conserved molecular mechanisms of protein folding in our organized genomes outside the context of “big bang” cosmology.
Simply put, this year’s Fourth of July celebration could be a “theory killer”.
BANG! You’re ridiculous theories about the evolution of human biodiversity are DEAD.
…the same elements that add color and sparkle to explosive light shows—potassium, calcium, lithium, copper and iron—perform numerous vital functions in our bodies.
For comparison to evolutionary theory, see for example these two pages from A Civic Biology: Presented in Problems (1914). The pages are displayed at the “Scopes” Museum in Dayton, Tennessee.

The great break in the organic chain between man and his nearest allies, which cannot be bridged over by any extinct or living species, has often been advanced as a grave objection to the belief that man is descended from some lower form; but this objection will not appear of much weight to those who, convinced by general reasons, believe in the general principle of evolution. Breaks incessantly occur in all parts of the series, some being wide, sharp and defined, others less so in various degrees; as between the orang and its nearest allies—between the Tarsius and the other Lemuridæ—between the elephant and in a more striking manner between the Ornithorhynchus or Echidna, and other mammals. But all these breaks depend merely on the number of related forms that have become extinct. At some future point, not distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state, as we may hope, than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian and the gorilla.
