t's hypothesised that although this leaves people more at risk of sun burn and skin cancers, it does allow them to produce more vitamin D in the lower levels of sunlight in the northern hemisphere.

In other words - it's an adaption to local conditions that allowed people who posessed that mutation to thrive in lower sunlight levels.

Noting mysterious or special about it.
