Albinism

Indoors, it is important to place lights for reading or close work over a shoulder rather than in front.

Gustavo Lacerda’s Striking Portraits of People with Albinism

Parents Rosemere Fernandes de Andrade and her partner Joao are dark-skinned Afro-Brazilians, yet three of their five children are albinos

Albinism is actually a defect in amino acid metabolism. Normally the amino acid Tyrosine (Y) is converted into melanin (the pigment found in skin and hair). Those with albinism have a defective tyrosinase enzyme which performs this conversion.

Beautiful Albinism. How can one look so flawless? It's like looking at a porcelain doll.

Meir's milky eyes stared at the swelling landscape. She dropped her hand into the water. "One swell two. Ocean blue. Three swell four. Count some more. Five swell six--" Then it appeared. Tall as three of Meir's coral core boards, menacing as a shark fin. Meir stood with the ease of practice, slid her back foot until she saw the tip of her board rise from the water. Then she waited for the impact.

the opposite of albinism called melanism,a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black.... (proof that mistakes can be beautiful)

People with albinism always have problems with vision (not correctable with eyeglasses) and many have low vision.

In types with slight pigmentation, hair appears more yellow or red-tinged and vision may be better

SOMETIMES THE MOST DIFFERENT IS ALSO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL....Why oh why do we higher creatures fear or shun all that is different from us. I think different is often the most beautiful. What a beautiful girl....so fragile and pale and lovely. SH.

One person in 17,000 in the U.S.A. has some type of albinism. A common myth is that people with albinism have red eyes. In fact there are different types of albinism and the amount of pigment in the eyes varies. Although some individuals with albinism have reddish or violet eyes, most have blue eyes. Some have hazel or brown eyes. However, all forms of albinism are associated with vision problem.

Albinism is a condition in which a person has an often complete lack of pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes. In not only occurs in humans but in all other vertebrates. Unfortunately, people with albinism face discrimination as many are ignorant towards their appearance.

A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer — rarer even than albinism — produces all-black offspring in that species which are known as “melanistic” or “melanic” deer.

Since 2007, 53 children and adults with albinism have been slaughtered and many others have been left to die, with arms and legs cut off by people who believe that potions and charms made from the body parts of people with albinism can be used to ensure wealth and good fortune.

    That is ashame because of people's ignorance, the unique people that God created have to suffer. We as people should learn to embrace our diffrences no matter what they may be.
