  • Chirality and age: do left-handers tend to die young?

    Dear All, I was once told that the odd thing about chirality (whether
    one ids right handed or left handed) is that statistics apparently
    suggest that there are more left-handed people of pre-school age than
    there are at retirement age. What happens to all those left-handers? Do
    they convert to right-handedness or don't they survive that long? Or are
    the stats simply wrong?
