Did you know that natural redheads are actually very rare? That is probably the reason why there is such a fascination with redheads in the media, literature, and in general. Redheads get a lot of attention drawn to them because of their hair whether they want or not, and there are a lot of misconceptions about redheads out there as well. He are all of the facts you never knew about redheads that will help you better understand your ginger friends.
There have been several studies done that show that redheads have a higher tolerance for pain than those with different colored hair. It’s surprising that hair color would have anything to do with this, but the studied have shown that there seems to be a connection there.
A study conducted at the University of Louisville in 2005 showed that redheads are more sensitive to temperature changes. This is due to the fact that they have the MC1R gene, suggesting that they were able to tell that there is a change of temperature before people with other colors of hair. Maybe we need to recruit more redheaded weather forecasters.
