No. There are many occupations that one could engage in that would not matter if the person were color blind or not. Disabiity benefits are for those persons who cannot be gainfully employed due to a debilitating physical illness, injury or mental condition.

I have looked at many websites and they all say cattle are color blind but nothing about bison being color blind so the best estimate I can make is that bison are not color blind.


The most common disadvantage of being color blind is not being able to see all colors.


as previously stated, there is a 100% certainty that the son of a color blind mother will be color blind.The chances of any daughter being color blind are a bit more complicated.If the father is color blind, and the mother is as well, there is a 100% chance of the daughter being color blind too.If the father is not, then the daughter of a color blind mother will not be color blind, though there is a 100% certainty that she will be a carrier, and so there is 50/50 chance that any of her sons will be (actually slightly more, if we account for the chance that her future partner may be color blind as well).If we accept that the prevalence of color blindness in the male population is about 5%, then the likelihood of any daughter from a color blind mother and some random father is about 5% as well.


Recent study shows that about 1 out of 100 people suffer from being color blind according to dcareaeyecare.com


possibly; if the kid was a male; then it will have more chances of being color blind, because the father will transport his genes to the male kid. If the mother is not color blind and the child was a girl she would most likely not be color blind; because the female parent will transport her genes to the female child. Because of genes maybe.


Any female offspring will not be color blind, but they have a 50% chance of carrying on the trait. Any male offspring will have a 50% chance of being color blind. The gene is located on the X chromosome and females would have to have a color-blind dad and a mom who is at least a carrier to even have the possibility of being color-blind. (X'X') Males just have to get the X chromosome carrying the trait, then they will be color blind, since males only have one X chromosome (X'Y)



50%. 1 of the two male offspring will definately be color blind. Do a punnett square with the father having normal vision and the mother being a carrier.


no, they dont even HAVE to be blind. you can be color blind without even close relatives or any with color blind history in their past.


Of course you can still see the flag, but not exactly the same way as someone who isn't color blind.

AnwerThis question is subject to much debate. Being colour blind can be a serious hindrance in some professions. For example, a colourblind person applying for a job as an electrician woyuld probably declare their colourblindness as a disability. The military and the RAF set strict standards for some of their employees with regards to colourblindness.

Yes. A person is color blind if all his or her X chromosomes have the defective gene. A man have one X chromosome, and a woman has two. Thus: If only the father is color blind - The probability that the son is color blind is 0% - The probability that the daughter is color blind is 0% - The probability that the daughter is a bearer of the defective gene is 100% If the mother is a bearer of the defective gene, but is not color blind, and the father is not color blind - The probability that the son is color blind is 50% - The probability that the daughter is color blind is 0% - The probability that the daughter is a bearer of the defective gene is 50% If the mother is a bearer of the defective gene but not color blind, and the father is color blind - The probability that the son is color blind is 50% - The probability that the daughter is color blind is 50% - The probability that the daughter is a bearer of the defective gene is 100% If the mother is color blind and the father is not - The probability that the son is color blind is 100% - The probability that the daughter is color blind is 0% - The probability that the daughter is a bearer of the defective gene is 100% If both parents are color blind - The probability that the child, regardless of gender, is color blind is 100%
