Are you or someone you know color blind?
For extra credit, can you name an occupation that
a color blind individual can not hold?

    I have known several different men over the years who were color blind, but no women. Any occupation depending on being able to see color would not be possible for a color blind person. Some that come to mind are jobs using color coded wire, anything to do with painting in color, driving would be hazardous, make up artist or interior decorator.

    My vision is red-shifted you might say. I have trouble discerning between poorly saturated blues, indigos, and violets, but I see a lot more shades of red than most people.

    girls cannot be color blind. THey carry the genetic trait from their father and pass it down to their sons.

    sorry to hear that you either suffered brain damage/shaken baby syndrome or have mutant genes.

    Color blindness has been known to result from a number of causes:

    Shaken Baby Syndrome: This can cause retina and brain damage and therefore can cause color blindness in infants and children. The damage is permanent so the effects will be carried on into adult life.
    Trauma: Similar to above, accidents and other traumas can cause swelling in the visual processing center of the brain – the occipital lobe.
    UV Damage: Typically caused during childhood where over-exposure to UV rays causes degeneration of the retina, this is the leading cause of blindness in the world however the damage often only presents itself during a person’s mature years.

    Inherited Color Blindness
    Color Blindness from Gene Mutations

    Inherited color blindness is usually the result of receiving a genetically mutated gene on the X chromosome; however research has shown that mutations that can lead to color blindness originate from in excess of 19 different chromosomes and many different genes. Gene mutation on the X chromosome is most common and also explains why (depending on nationality) some 7% of males, but less than 1% of females exhibit color blindness of some form.

    Males only have one X chromosome, whereas...

Gene mutation on the X chromosome is most common and also explains why (depending on nationality) some 7% of males, but less than 1% of females exhibit color blindness of some form.

    Males only have one X chromosome, whereas females have two. In females, if one X chromosome is defective, the normal one will protect the woman from being color blind. Females who have a defective gene are carriers, their sons have a 50% chance of being color blind, and their daughters have a 50% chance of becoming a carrier. Females who suffer color blindness as a result of mutated X chromosomes will typically have a carrier mother, and color blind father, receiving two mutated X chromosomes.
