Albinism & the Love Of Two Cousins
An albino baby and his cousin snuggle together in this photo. Albinism is a rare condition in which there is no pigment in the skin. Only about 1 in 17,000 people have this condition. It is most popular in people of African descent, though it can happen in people from all around the world.
A person with the condition is more likely to burn in the sun and is susceptible to skin cancer. There is no cure for it, but with proper skin care and regular visits to the dermatologist, there aren’t too many complications to worry about.
