There are a bunch of myths out there about redheads: Are they really going extinct? Are they more prone to develop cancer? Trace has all those answers and more. Read More: Simultaneous purifying selection on the ancestral MC1R allele and positive selection on the melanoma-risk allele V60L in South Europeans http://mbe.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/09/12/molbev.mst158.abstract "In humans, the geographical apportionment of the coding diversity of the pigmentary locus MC1R is, unusually, higher in Eurasians than in Africans." Are redheads going extinct? http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/genetic/redhead-extinction.htm "In August 2007, many news organizations reported that redheads or "gingers," as our British and Australian friends call them, would eventually become extinct." MC1R http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/gene/MC1R "The MC1R gene provides instructions for making a protein called the melanocortin 1 receptor. This receptor plays an important role in normal pigmentation." Why Redheads Are at Higher Risk for Melanoma http://www.livescience.com/39094-redhead-health-risks.html "The same genetic mutation that leads to red hair and fair skin may put redheads at risk for skin cancer, a new study suggests." Redheads may be at higher risk of melanoma even without sun http://articles.latimes.com/2012/oct/31/science/la-sci-red-hair-melamona-20121101 "A study on mice suggests that pheomelanin pigment, which gives rise to red hair, is itself a potential trigger for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer."

Hoary stereotypes, such as the idea that redheads are also hot heads, are mixed together with actual physiological differences — such as a heightened sensitivity to pain. Now science is getting a better understanding of redheaded physiology than ever before."
