Redheads Are Becoming Extinct
In 2007, the Oxford Hair Foundation reported that red hair was going to be extinct in 100 years. This finding is a bit suspect, as the Oxford Hair Foundation is funded by Proctor and Gamble, makers of red hair dye. Regardless, it appears that red hair is here to stay. HowStuffWorks.com reports, "Because it's a recessive trait, red hair can easily skip a generation. It can then reappear after skipping one or more generations if both parents, no matter their hair color, carry the red hair gene." So, even if you're not a ginger, don't despair — your children still may be.
