International Lefthanders Day

International Lefthanders Day: A day to celebrate lefties

Here are some fun facts about lefties:

•15% of the population is left-handed. 

•Lefties are thought to be more creative: While there’s no scientific proof, many left-handed people follow careers in the arts. 

•It’s not genetic … at least not entirely: Scientists think that your dominant hand is completely random because studies have shown that many twins have opposite- handedness. 

•Mothers over 40 are more likely to have left-handed babies: A study found that babies of moms over 40 are twice as likely to be lefties. 

•Lefties like to drink more than righties: Cheers to the left-handed, because according to an international survey, they drink more than their right-handed peers. 

•Left-handed people make better athletes: It has everything to do with right-handed people being unable to effectively react and anticipate your movements. 

•Most left-handed people learn to be ambidextrous: Not because they want to, but because they have to. It’s a right-handed world. 

•50% of dogs are left pawed: Research has found that half of dogs favor their left paw over their right.
