London: Redheads can put their colouring down to the weather, new research has claimed. Experts believe that Scotland`s gloomy climate has seen a deliberate genetic adaptation to help exploit rare sunny days and boost Vitamin D production. Alastair Moffat, managing director of the Scotland`s DNA project, said the country`s dull weather was responsible for a larger number of flame-haired men and women being born, the Daily Mail reported. Only about 1-2 per cent of the world`s population has red hair but in Scotland the figure is much higher, with about 13 per cent, or 650,000 people, with flaming locks.
