Question
Posted by: G | 2004/01/19

Where does it come from?

I would like to know exactly how it is possible for a person to be the only left handed person in his entire family, with everyone being right handed? There is no trace or knowledge of someone in the family being left handed or footed. Where does that come from and how possible, please explain.

Dear G

About one in every thirty-three persons is left handed. There is no evidence for strong genetic determinants, and the absence of a positive family history is not unusual. You may be delighted to learn that left handed persons are often highly intelligent.
