Sexy left-handed women are part of a rare group of people to grace this earth.
According to most studies, 7-10% of the adult population is left-handed, with the trait being slightly more common in men. Left-handedness is usually determined by handwriting. Most people have some degree of ambidexterity, especially southpaws who often have to adapt in order to get along in a right-handed world.
By AMANDA ONION Feb. 17, 2005 It's not easy being a lefty. Statistics show left-handed people are more likely to be schizophrenic, alcoholic, delinquent, dyslexic, and have Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as mental disabilities. They're also more likely to die young and get into accidents. So if evolutionary theory dictates survival of the fittest, why do lefties still exist?
People who are left handed make up about 5-15% of the population
People who are left handed make up about 5 to 15 percent of the population. Left handed people are more prone to have allergies, insomnia, migraines and a whole host of other things more than people who are right handers. Maybe it's from living with us right handed people.
Right handed people for the most part probabily think that some crazy left handed person decided that people showed wear a ring on the third finger on the left hand.
No-one has come up with a definitive reason for WHY some people are left-handed, but about 13% of the population around the world are, and it is thought to be genetic - it definitely runs in families.
