Left Handed

While waiting for my parents in the office, decided to Google some fact or personality about left handed people, here are some, how true is these?
Source from
  • About 10% of the world’s population is left-handed.
  • Some doctors believed that left-handed people are more likely to struggle with breast cancer, allergies, and asthma.
  • Leadership. About 66% of American presidents in the last 30 years were left-handed men. Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald Fold were all left-handed presidents. Barack Obama and John McCain are both left-handed.
  • Quick thinkers. Studies have shown that lefties are “exceptional.” Australian research shows that left-handed people think more quickly when playing computer games or sports. Left-handed people also tend to earn more money.
  • Sexuality. Research from Canada reveals this interesting quality of left-handed people: they’re more likely to be homosexual. (WTFFFFFF???)
  • Independence: Some experts believe left-handed people are more independent because they’ve had to get along in a world that’s not made for them. Dr Peters says that lefties are “slightly more resistant to social pressures, to have more of an independent streak.”
  • Adaptability: Canadian research shows that left-handed people are more adaptable than right-handed people. That is, a lefty can use her right hand to do tasks much easier than a righty can use his hand. Left-handed people seem to be able to switch over more easily.

Really? Anyone else who is a lefty?
