How do we explain that through the centuries, all over the world, there has always been a consistent left-handed minority of people of around 10 percent? Author Rik Smits attempts to answer this question in his new book "The Puzzle of Left-handedness."
"We know for certain that genetics is involved in left-handedness, since it runs in families" says Smits, who is left-handed and a science writer in the Netherlands. A left-handed parent is twice as likely to have a left-handed child, and two left-handed parents are three to four times as likely to have a southpaw son or daughter.

I'm not left handed but always felt that lefties or southpaws were treated worse and made to feel unwelcome,especially in schools. Any lefties want to relate experiences today?
