If anyone doubted claims that more men are color blind than women, a new study has come out with some surprising findings.  The Indian Express has reported on a study that shares 1 in 12 men are color blind, while only 1 out of 255 women are afflicted.

Are you ready for something really wild?

Researchers at the Newcastle University also believe that some women may be able to see 99 million more colours than the average human being.

We can’t speak for everyone, but boy is that impressive. Do you feel you’re a color super hero?  Is there anyone in your life that you always go to for color advice?
