"Genetic testing of villagers in a remote part of China has shown that nearly two thirds of their DNA is of Caucasian origin, lending support to the theory that they may be descended from a 'lost legion' of Roman soldiers."

Blue People of Kentucky, Appalachia. The genetic form of methemoglobinemia is caused by one of several genetic defects.
