Left-handers get their day

Left-handers get their day

Newswatch has gathered some interesting facts about lefties after the world marked National Left-Handers Day yesterday.


To share an interesting fact - there is no definitive explanation why some people are left handed but research shows that it runs in the family.   

The world population of lefties is 13% with the majority of them being men. It is reported that brain dominance makes left-handed people more visual and artistic - some left-handed artists include Da Vinci and Michelangelo. 

Other well-known left-handed people are US President Barack Obama, soccer great Lionel Messi and power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. 

And lastly the brain is cross wired to the hands therefore left-handed people are the only ones who can say that they are always in the right mind.

See pictures of famous people that are left-handed below.
