About 10-15% of the population is left-handed. Why is this so? Genetically, it's likely due to a gene called NRH (“non-right-handed”) which has a 50% chance of making people left-handed (and also has a 50% chance of making your hair spiral counterclockwise!).
There has been a lot of interesting research on handedness in the last decade.
Left-handers' brains are structured differently from right-handers' in ways that can allow them to process language, spatial relations and emotions in more diverse and potentially creative ways. Also, a slightly larger number of left-handers than right-handers are especially gifted in music and math. It is believed that these abilities are due to increased communication between the brain hemispheres, and the ability to use both sides of the brain at once when processing stimuli.
People throughout history have incorrectly thought that left-handedness was a demonic curse or learning disability that must be corrected.
Some famous left-handed people;
Leonardo da Vinci, Drew Barrymore, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Keanu Reeves, Chewbacca the Wookie, Harpo Marx, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Winston Churchill, Babe Ruth, Martina Navratilova, James Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush.
