Interesting overlooked point

If anyone wants to know why I disapprove of science screwing with genetics, look no further:
Color blind hunters are better able to pick out prey against a confusing background. A dozen prehistoric hunters would have done well to have at least one such member in their posse. An 8% prevalence equals 1 in 12. More contemporary military leaders often recruited color blind soldiers to help them see through certain types of camouflage.
