Blue-eyed humans


www.physorg.com

New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today

Freaks. Alla ya's FREAKS!

Pretty neat that we're able to look back that far, though, really

Wohoo I'm a mutant. Cool well as Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto from the wonderful X-men comics once put it. "We are the next step of evolution" But I will admit that guy must have been an ancestory to Hugh Heffner.

Where was the point of origin for the mutation? Meaning, from what dominant genome? I would like to research this myself!

It's the OCA2 gene or P gene!I cant really go in depth in this one as im only learning about this stuff myself, but its really interesting though!

I found this: www.thetech.org...

"In terms of eye color, OCA2 comes in two versions—brown (B) and blue (b). The brown version works in the stroma, the blue version does not. Since the blue version doesn’t work there, no melanin builds up. So these folks have blue eyes.

Now OCA2 isn’t just involved in eye color. When it is completely broken, we end up with something called P-gene related oculocutaneous albinism. This is a form of albinism more common in Africans than in Caucasians."

If when it becomes a P-Gene, and is prevalent more in Africans than Caucasians, then why don't more Africans have blue eyes? [wondering.........]

Maybe a balance, the melanin is more powerful or something, sorry I don't know much about this.

It sounds like junk science to me. As a firm believer in Evolution this alleged "Adam" sounds abit to biblical to be true. Humans are not the only mammal with blue eyes.

I am curious to know about myself. I had blue eyes when I was a toddler but then it changed to Green. Now it is hazy green and I believe it will change to light green as I grow older.

I can assure you this is serious research. Actually it was already published 9th of January by the Copenhagen University on their website.

Searching seems to indicate it wasn't published on English websites before yesterday, and the linked article is a very condensed excerpt of the original in Danish. I'm sure there's a link for the full article in English too, if you search it.

Here's the original Danish article in full (google doesn't translate from Danish 'yet').
sund.ku.dk...

Maybe someone knows an auto-trans that handles Danish.

What's strange about that? People of India share the same origine as European people.

Does anyone have an answer to why my Baby Blues change color according to my mood? They range in color from Steel to Bright Sky Blue.

I've never met anyone else with this same trait before whether they have Brown, Blue or Green eyes.

HAha my extreemly blue eyes are my best feature women love them

But you all do know that brown eyed people can have the blue eyed gene too,and if their partner does theres a 1 in 4 chance of a blue eyed baby
