As far as we know MC1R is the only magazine devoted to one gene!

A part of the world population is carrying this gene that causes red hair. With 1 in 4 people as carriers, the chance of two people having a child with red hair is about 2% (1 in 64).

In the course of three issues this magazine has grown considerably and the editor in chief Tristan Rodgers residing in Hamburg has enthusiastically made his nonprofit job out of it. With 60 pages more the magazine explores being red in all its splendor. Beautiful gingers from Tel Aviv photographed by Nurit Becherit. The great debate Ginger versus RED. Music of Ginger origin. A diary about loosing your red hair due to Leukemia. And stories on all the beautiful side effects of being red like the white complexion and the lovely freckles!
