Her name is Jo Cameron. She has a rare genetic mutation that prevents pain, anxiety, stress, fear, and depression.
She has two gene mutations:
The first mutation is common in the general population and it slows the activity of a gene called FAAH. The gene makes an enzyme that breaks down anandamide, a chemical in the body that is critical for pain sensation, mood, and memory.
The second mutation was a missing section of DNA named FAAH-OUT which has now silenced her FAAH gene.
Where this gets strange:
Because of these two mutations, a natural cannabinoid called anandamide builds up in her body. Cameron has twice as much anandamide as those in the general population.
The one negative side-effect:
The gene mutation causes forgetfulness. She has lived with an elevated level of absent-mindedness.
Would this be a fair trade for you?
