Natural Selection: Choose a good, bad, or neutral trait

Natural Selection: Choose a good, bad, or neutral trait (for example, curly hair, wavy hair, straight hair, height, skin color, diabetes, lactose intolerance, freckles, Klinefelter’s syndrome, cancer, sticky earwax, flaky earwax, or any ONE of your favorite traits). Be sure to describe each of the key elements of the trait, such as how the trait might be observable and varied in a population. Meaning, who may have this trait and how does it affect the population that it is found in? How does the trait factor into resource competition such as acquiring food or mates? How can we see this trait changing in frequency (increasing or decreasing in the population) over multiple generations? Make sure to answer this in 200 words or more.
