One of the traits that we usually use to physically describe people is their hair color. Hair is a useful descriptor because it varies so much among us.

Melanin is the molecule responsible for the many different color tones. It’s also responsible for the color of our skin and eyes. We inherit these traits from our parents in a complex way.

Understanding how our can produce different hair color tones can be as difficult as untangling long hair after not brushing it for several days.

Even though some genes are known to determine hair color variation, recent studies based on large cohorts of people from the United Kingdom and Latin America have shown that there are more than a dozen genes involved in hair color.

Several strategies WHO endorsed — educating people about ageism, fostering intergenerational contacts, and changing policies and laws to promote age equity — are being tried in the United States. But a greater sense of urgency is needed in light of the coronavirus pandemic’s shocking death toll, including more than 500,000 older Americans, experts suggest.
