Did you know that redheads have more sex?1

Redheads are more sensitive to pain.2

And redheads need more anesthesia.3

 

There are a lot of myths about redheads. I guess that will happen with any specific grouping of people, right? We like to think in terms of groups, classification, stereotypes. I read that bees sting redheads more than other hair colors. I am not certain I believe this. Anyone know of a scientific study that supports this claim?

Red hair is a genetic mutation. A genetic mutation I am thankful for. And no, this picture is not of me but worth sharing all the same. Long live the redheads.
