Do Red Heads Feel Pain Differently?
Do Redheads Feel Pain Differently? Not many people know that the color of a person's hair may have something to do with their tolerance for pain. Research shows that people with red hair may have more sensitivity to certain types of pain and require 20% more anesthesia. Researchers believe that this may be due to a mutation in a gene that affects hair color and one's perception of pain, among other things. The amount of red pigment in the hair can be determined by one gene (MC1R). Mutation in the MC1R gene results in the production of a substance called pheonmelanin that results in red hair and fair skin. The MC1...

Human Skulls Are Being Sold Online, But Is It Legal?
This post originally appeared on National Geographic. In 2011, an archaeologist in the United Kingdom picked out one of the many human skulls sitting on his shelf. The 17th-century European male was missing most of his teeth and mandible, but the skull was clean and generally in decent condition. The archaeologist photographed it, described it, and listed it on eBay. At the time, the popular online auction site allowed anyone to trade in human bones as long as the remains were clean, articulated, and for medical purposes. The 17th-century skull was neither articulated nor did it go to a doctor, but it did fetch the archa...
