Human or Mutant? Boy from China has blue eyes that can see through dark
There are many mysteries of evolution existing in parts of the world. Instances have occurred throughout centuries but have faded into obscurity. Even in our modern day we have been privy to some strange cases of human evolution such as the case of a Chinese boy with blue eyes who made headline news a few years back. The most amazing fact surrounding Nong Youshi from Dahua in China was that he could actually see in the dark.
When Nong Youshi’s existence was made public, He attracted a lot of attention from reporters and medical professionals alike who wanted to see for themselves if what his parents claimed was true or not. Some disbelieved, some were surprised at his abilities whereas some attributed it to as gift of excellent night vision. Whatever the truth, the fact that Nong Youshi was Chinese and had blue eyes was a mystery and is still living today.
1 Was Nong an evolutionary hydbrid or a mystery mutant
Nong Youshi was born in Dahua Southeast China. His teacher remarked to reporters that he had blue eyes similar to Scandinavian ethnicity and they also shone with a slight green tone in the presence of any bright illumination such as a flashlight.
Several tests were done on the little Chinese boy with blue eyes at the time whose popularity had grown worldwide. According to his father, the boy would always experience discomfort during the day but was at ease during night as darkness approached. Nong was even tested by skeptical journalists who made him fill out a questionnaire sitting in the dark. Much to the surprise of witnesses he performed the task perfectly. What was Nong? A mutant, an alien, a freak of evolution or an albino as some scientists put it.
2 Doctors claim it is impossible for humans to see in the dark
Night vision in animals like cats is possible due to the presence of the tapetum lucidum which is a layer of cells that help them see in the dark. Speaking to Livescience, Pediatrician Doctor James Reynolds of state university of New York, Buffalo stated it was genetically impossible for a mutation to produce a tapetum lucidum in a human. The mutation would have to be evolved gradually over generations.
3 Scientists concluded that oddities were due to physiological defects
Nong the Chinese boy with blue eyes first generated public interest in China in 2009, but over the years his popularity increased. Video footage by journalists has attempted to capture the incredible mystery of the cat boy of China. A medical examination of Nong found that he lacked retinal pigmentation that protects the eyes from excessive light. Moreover, he also lacked colour pigmentation which made his eyes blue. Nong’s case was concluded by experts that he suffered from a rare case of ocular albinism.
