11. Blue Skin Disorder

A large family (known as the Blue Fugates) lived in Troublesome Creek, Kentucky until the 1960s. Most of them lived past the age of 80, with no serious illness—just blue skin. The trait was passed on from generation to generation. People with this condition could have blue, plum, indigo, or even purple skin.
