If I remember correctly, some here said it was bad for box turtles. Can someone tell me why?

My turtle is not healthy. I've shown photos to Jim Harding and to the herp supervisor at John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids, and both say "she" is not getting good bone growth. Bleached scutes, I think they said.
