5 Reasons Being Left-Handed Is A Disadvantage

Left-handed people have remained disadvantaged in almost every situation. It seems innocuous, but being born with this crippling condition means that …

#5. They’ll Die Sooner

Studies have shown that the number of left-handers who make it to old age is drastically lower than the number of their right-handed peers. In short, lefties tend to check out earlier. Why? Well, for one, lefties just have more accidents.

Studies have shown that, if you’re left-handed, you’re twice as likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Not that they don’t have reason to be afraid, considering that …

In certain parts of Africa, Europe and much of the Far East, it’s actually offensive to do anything with your left hand besides wipe your ass. For this and other reasons, the left hand is considered unclean and carries a cultural stigma.
