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...
