Darker = more adapted to fruit and higher fructose (honey).

what do you guys think?

Who says there's significant differences in fructose "tolerance"?

You need to provide more justification --- Why would you have a scientifically valid hypothesis that skin tone has any relationship to fructose tolerance. Otherwise it's just wild-ass-conjecture and worthless.

Actually that's an awesome idea. The closer to the equator the more likely the ancestors had access to plant based food (carbs) year round,

That my thoughts too, I think that is where Steve was coming from maybe? People with access to year round fruits should have a higher tolerance due to diets higher in fructose than say Europeans.. & places warm enough to grow fruits year round will have almost round sunshine which = darker skin.
