  1. I am 100% sure that this is a myth, and its life expectancy is longer than that of right-handers and left-handers combined.�

    I regularly see this information in various collections about left-handers and right-handers, and I don't know where it came from. Perhaps this is a myth “from the depths of time”, when lefties were mocked in every possible way, retrained in rather harsh ways. When a person is taught from childhood that he is bad just because he writes with his left hand,no nervous system can stand it. A strong nervous system is the key to good health and longevity.�

    In short, there is no” innate ” relationship between the leading hand and life expectancy. Yes, there were some strange studies, as a result of which the myth was confirmed. Allegedly, left-handedness indicates birth stress, developmental delays, and may be a ” defect of the immune system.” This research comes from the 20th century.�

    According to another study, left-handers live less because the world is designed for right-handers. Left-handers are more likely to be victims of accidents.�

    In the early noughties, another study showed that there was no link between life expectancy and the leading hand.

    The minimum number of elderly left-handers is not related to the fact that all left-handers die young. Everything is much simpler: people were forcibly retrained in childhood.
