Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
Reblogging for the last comment.
second to last comment was dope, and very true.
but for real, is the reason behind skin color really not common knowledge? I mean….
there seems to be some assumption going on that darker skin is the adaptation.
in fact, darker skin is the ‘original flavor’. but evolution likes to get rid of traits that aren’t needed, especially if they cost energy, and maintaining a melanin shield is expensive. we also need sunlight to synthesize vitamin D, and melanin blocks that. so in latitudes that get less sunlight, folks evolved to produce less melanin.
vitamin D deficiency is actually a problem for dark-skinned people living in areas with long, dark winters, btw. take your vitamins!
light-colored eyes are also an adaptation to less sunlight. if real life was like science fiction, blue-eyed people could see in the dark. but reality’s not that cool.
I have trouble seeing in bright light. Idk if that’s because of the blue eyes or because I prefer being inside because I’m super pale and burning sucks.
Brown-eyed followers, do your eyes adjust to bright sunlight, or are you always squinting?
Pretty well, I’d have to say, unless I’m coming out of a relatively dim area (like an office/warehouse) to like, a clear bright sky. Even if I have to squint, I only have to do it enough so I can see through my eyelashes and the adjustment is fairly quick.
i have green/gray eyes and i have a real problem with bright light, especially glare off water/snow. this is all anecdotal, but it occurs to me that if pigmented eyes are a good defense against snow glare, that might explain why, when you reach the snowline, the population’s eye color darkens again.
