7 Things You Didn't Know About Redheads

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." Why Surgeons Dread Redheads http://healthland.time.com/2010/12/10/why-surgeons-dread-red-heads/ "As the authors of a recent study published in BMJ attest, society's red-haired members don't always get a fair shake. 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." 'Ginger gene' developed after humans moved to colder climate 50,000 years ago http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/10319859/Ginger-gene-developed-after-humans-moved-to-colder-climate-50000-years-ago.html "Fair skin and red hair first appeared around the time people settled in Europe and still remains a dominant gene in southern Europeans today, even if they become tanned."

Rachel H: I’m a red head with freckles

ONE TRUE GOD: Red heads are the beginning of the white race! Red heads prefer Black Men!

Flare_simjXX: I’m a red head but my hair is thin and I have only few freckles and I can tan in the sun. Does that have anything to do with being multiple races.

Hannah Patullo-Chapman: I have red hair

Blayne Peterson: What do you mean soulless we have tons of souls that's what happens when you steal them

Rylee K: Fun fact!: I was born a blonde but my hair changed to red when I was really young.

Ashley Lawrence: I am a red head yehhhhhhhh 🙌🙋

honeymoon videos: When I sunburn I get as red as my hair😭😂

Its Kaylee: I swear if I get skin cancer

Clara Usagi-chan: My hair is dark brown but it’s getting reddish shades from time to time, and no one in my family is a red or a ginger, so how is this happening?
