Extremely dense bones
Studies in bone structure helped scientists discover the LRP5 gene that enforces bone mineralization and is basically responsible for their density or fragility (depending on various mutations of this gene). One of such mutations can make your bones virtually unbreakable! Your skin will also age less, so you’ll end up looking and feeling younger much longer than your peers.
A gene that keeps you awake
Yes, some people are genetically programmed to need less sleep. This sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? Because it is! Amazing people like Nicola Tesla, Margaret Thatcher, and Winston Churchill ‘suffered’ from this genetic mutation that left them with more time to become great and achieve stunning results. Scientists believe the DEC2 gene is responsible for this abnormality.
Think you have a perfect pitch? Then congratulations because you among the few lucky ones who are actually born this way! Most scientists agree that people are born with an ability to accurately differentiate specific frequencies, so when there’s a D# playing they can easily recognize that’s it’s a D#. Only 1 person in 10,000 can boast a perfect pitch! Nevertheless, recent studies show that it can be trained – at least to a certain degree.
