Blondes 'to die out in 200 years'
Play devils advocate, what opposing view could be expressed
More blondes could share their recessive genes and create a new generation of natural blondes.
Are natural blondes limited to a gender or race? The image of the article is biased.
If blonde was a desirable trait, there would be more bottle blondes. How many people are willing to get their DNA tested to report if they are a naturall blonde?
What and how will research prove the last blonde is from Finland?
If this was based on a scientific study, I would have believed the story more. There are several recessive traits and genes that are said to disappear.
There wasn't enough evidence for me to believe the story.
This story would pick up quickly based on word of mouth. It is simple and easy to read.
What is your opinion about the issue, and what caused you to form that opinion
This article was intriguing. When I was younger I had light blonde hair. Now that I am older, my hair is a darker blonde
This didn't really bother me. My mother was a cosmetologist and colored hair for a living. If someone wants to bleach their hair blonde they have the option.
What ethical issues were raised by the article
Experts in Germany and Scientists were vague references
Jonathan Rees, professor of dermatology at the University of Edinburgh said it was unlikely blondes would die out completely.
The professors comment on blondes might be an opinion or unrelated to this article. There isn't a reference.
What are the statistics. How do we calculate the natural blonde population as a whole? What is the sample size of the population?
How could using a balance in research and reporting tactics have made a difference in the outcome of what was reported
This article would have held a stronger argument if a scientific journal was referenced.
A lengthy study could bring a sample size of blondes to see if their genes would be passed onto their offspring
Genes will change a lot from now until 2202. What evidence will we have to prove this?
