The Moken by Andrew Testa

Moken sea gypsy children, living in the waters between Burma and Thailand, swim before they can walk. Their eyesight is more than 50% better than other children’s; they voluntarily control their pupils to fish along the ocean floor. Can European children learn this? Yup, showed Swedish researcher Anna Gislen in 2006. (Moken children also stay underwater 2x as long, by lowering their heart rates. Perhaps Gislen could train a few business leaders to do that next.)
