(ORDO NEWS) — Some time ago, a family from Great Britain got into the Guinness Book of Records. She became the record holder for the number of albino sisters and brothers. Lives a unique family in Coventry. It consists of six people who possess this incredibly rare genetic trait. Despite this, family members are not at all worried about this.
Nasim Akhtar, one of the girls belonging to the albino family, noted that it is not so easy to get into the Guinness Book of Records. Perhaps an incredible and at the same time unique story will inspire someone and give self-confidence.
Nasim currently works in the National Health Service as a rehabilitation therapist. All her sisters and brothers say that the girl is the most talented and intelligent among them. It was she who told in detail about her relatives to the representatives of the Guinness Book of Records.
Rafi is considered the youngest member of the family at the same time. Musarat surprises everyone with its incredible organization. Mukagas is a real perfectionist, and Haider, in turn, is a peacemaker. Ghulam surprises with its amusement and great sense of humor. The girl emphasized that it was albinism that caused her family to become so friendly. At the same time, they do not suffer at all from the fact that they have such an interesting feature.
Representatives of the Akhtar family suffer from a genetic disease. Albinism leads to the fact that the production of melanin in the body is disrupted. They inherited this pathology from their parents Aslam Parvez and Shamim Akhtar, who were born in Pakistan.
Melanin is a chemical type of substance that affects the color of hair, eyes, and skin. It also takes an active part in the full development of the optic nerve. A lack of melanin can cause serious vision problems or even cause it to be absent. All representatives of the Akhtar family faced this problem, but they still lead a full and rich life.
Gulam Akhtar said that his family was very much bullied because of their unusual appearance. They tried to stick together, which made it possible to withstand the attacks of others.
A new world record was registered in the United States. The doctors managed to save the child, who was born at 21 weeks of pregnancy. It is worth noting that this is only half of the period that a woman is carrying a baby.
The boy, named Curtis, was born last July in Alabama. Its weight was literally 420 grams. Today the baby is 16 months old and he is completely healthy.
