We all have something unique in ourselves, something that makes us different from everyone else. It can be a birthmark or something we do differently. But there are some traits that are so rare that it makes you stand out in a crowd. When we think about it, blue eyes must be the first thing that must that popped into our mind but there are way more mind-boggling traits. This might leave you thinking about how astonishing the people around our world is.
10 Rarest Traits in the Human Body
1. Golden Blood
Whenever we hear about blood type, we are usually talking about A+, B+, AB+, or O+ and the rarest one is the negative once but in reality, Rhnull is the rarest type of blood. People with Rhnull blood type got no antigen in their RBCs. Less than 0.6% of people around the world have this blood type. Rare blood type causes some health issues for example a pregnant woman can face some complications if the blood is incompatible with the growing fetus. It’s usually called “golden blood”.
Where blue or amber-colored eyes are hard to find, Heterochromia is an eye condition found in less than 1% of the whole population. In this condition, irises are of different colors. There are three types of Heterochromia:
In this condition, the inner iris is of different color than the outer part of the iris.
In this condition, a spot in the iris is of a different color than the rest of the iris. It’s mostly due to pigmentation.
In this condition, one iris is of a whole different color than the other iris.
3. Natural Red hair
We sure have seen many redheads in the film industry or social media but only a few of them are natural. Only 1-2% of the global population has natural red hair. Red hair is a recessive genetic trait so it’s vital for both the parents to have the genes whether they are red hair themselves or not. We all have sure seen Emma Stone, she slays her red hair without a doubt.
A diamond-shaped face is the rarest of all face shapes. It basically has prominent cheekbones with a narrow chin and narrow forehead. Cheekbones are the widest part of the face. It is said to be the most desired face shape for a woman. It’s most feminine and elegant. Megan Fox is among those very few people who have the rarest face shape.
5. Blue skin
Blue skin color is the rarest type of skin color. People with this condition are called methemoglobinemia, meaning people with actual blue skin. Only the Blue Fugates of Kentucky are known families that are carrying this trait. Blue skin can be due to a low oxygen rate in the blood. Even after this condition, some Fugates lived into their 90’s. No blue-skinned Fugate has been known as of now.
Albinism is a rare condition, a congenital disorder characterized by humans. People with albinism have lower pigmentation in the skin, hair, and eyes. They are at higher risk of skin cancer but it can be prevented by using sunscreen and covering the skin in sunlight. There is no cure yet but vision can be improved with proper supervision. There’s a chance of any born to have albinism even though both parents don’t have it. That depends upon the medical history of the family.
Distichiasis or two rows of eyelashes is quite a rare trait where there’s another row of eyelashes just beneath the actual one. Some people have a full set of lashes and even have a single hair. It’s caused due to genetic mutation and oil glands in the eyelids produce more hair.
It is the condition of having an extra number of fingers. Actually having an extra (small finger) ulnar is very common, extra thumb too but having extra central fingers is rarest of all. Extra ring, middle, and index finger are found in a very small proportion of the population. A study concludes that African Americans are more likely to have an extra ulnar while Asians tend to have an extra thumb. Extra central still remains the rarest among them.
9. Unbreakable Bones
As impossible as it sounds, it’s actually true. This does not mean having strong bones either. It was caused by a mutation in the LRP5 gene. Only a few people, all from one family in Connecticut, have been known to have the mutation. They all face just one issue which to difficulty in swimming. They have dense bones and are said to be the strongest bones in the entire world.
10. No wisdom teeth
This is the least rare or most common among all the listed traits above. There are 1 to 4 wisdom teeth in a mouth but that’s just 20-25% of the population. 35% of the population is born without any wisdom tooth at all. In this case, the condition isn’t rare but the awareness about it is. It causes no issues in most of the cases, only some suffer mild pain and chewing issues.
If you have any of these, then just know you are among the rarest. Every human is unique in their own sense, embracing the body just the way it is, makes the person even more special. Every color is beautiful, all body shapes are beautiful. It’s not these traits that make you look different, it’s the way to express and espouse it, that’s what makes you different.
