Cut lefties some slack!

I just saw this article on the BBC News website.

Gene for left-handedness is found - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6923577.stm

So, according to this article, being left-handed means:
  • I have an increased risk of developing schizophrenia (?!?!)
  • I can think quicker when carrying out tasks such as playing computer games or playing sport
  • I could have an advantage in hand-to-hand combat (that's a handy thing to know next time I get into a street-fight)
  • I have a greater risk of getting some diseases and of having an accident

It's a right-handed world, isn't it. Sorry :)
