Why does having ginger hair go hand in hand with freckles and pinkish pale skin? Does the recessive gene which gives a person ginger hair also effect skin colour?
I mean ginger not redheard btw

Suitably silly but original, I like

yes I use it for my cooking all the time, gingers are very tasty for your food and very healthy for your as well
Even if it does make my username sounds like a recipe...
But, yes from what I understand the gene is linked to the pigmentation of the skin. It is recessive and only about 1 in 3 people the gene shows up. Explains why people like me, who have parents who are black haired, produce 2 ginger kids. That or we had a ginger milk man maybe...
