“Facts” on Left-hand people?

Left-handers are the strange ones.  While they make up 10% of the population, it seems like society has forgotten about them.

While the exact reason behind this phenomenon is still unclear, recent research shows that there might be a link between human genes and the environment and our surrounding. (Wow. Any other factors to add?)

It is also believed that most left-handers come from a family in which some of the members are already ‘lefty’.

The team of researchers found that the brain doesn’t function the same in right-handed and left-handed individuals.

Hence, left-handers are more independent as they are forced to deal with the majority of right-handed world? (Since designs target the vastest portion of population?)
