Both interesting: These are both fascinating diseases and the subject of much inquiry. Look on wikipedia and you will find much to talk about. The issues are quite different but the underpinning for each is genetic. The hemophilia has had impacts on history such as the family of queen victoria. Color deficiency has caused some famous accidents. Have fun.
