Left-handed DNA found - and it changes brain structure
"For the first time in humans, we have been able to establish that these handedness-associated cytoskeletal differences are actually visible in the brain," Prof Douaud, who is herself left handed, said.
In the left-handed participants, the two halves of the brain - the left and right hemispheres - were better connected and more co-ordinated in regions involved in language.
The researchers speculate left-handed people may have better verbal skills, although they do not have the data from this study to prove it.
The study also showed slightly higher risks of schizophrenia, and slightly lower risks of Parkinson's disease, in left-handed people....

Trying to be funny is one thing, and you do try real hard, but poking fun at mutations that people don't have any control over, isn't harmless fun. Let's see you throw a fastball, or lasso a wild stallion, with your feet, or write poems while swinging from tree to tree through a forest. You can't. The one thing you can do is to rail on anyone you can, to try and bring them down, as you blame the whole of mankind for the lousy hand you were dealt on your physical appearance.
My sage advice is to hobble into your cave, curl up into your favorite goat pelt, and cry it out. Stop looking at your reflection, and tomorrow might be a brighter day...

Interesting. I'm left-handed as well, as far as writing only, though. Everything else, eating, and throwing a ball, etc., I do right-handed. Strange, I guess. The difficulty for left-handed writers is how we had to learn to keep our hands over the top as we write, to keep the outside of our palms from smearing the ink/graphite. Due to that, unless we write slowly, and controlled, our writing isn't typically all that neat, and it's usually slanted.
Well, Iâ€™m left handed and , Oh things my â€śgrapes of wrath familyâ€ť did to alter my gene pool , â€śMa, how bout we tie his left hand down and he use his right . Now , Pa I think it better you use the stirring spoon and whack him when he picks up his forkâ€ť. Nope,didnâ€™t work, Iâ€™m stubborn, and stay left handed despite their efforts.
