Gene for left-handedness is found


news.bbc.co.uk

Scientists have discovered the first gene which appears to increase the odds of being left-handed.

The Oxford University-led team believe carrying the gene may also slightly raise the risk of developing psychotic mental illness such as schizophrenia.

The gene, LRRTM1, appears to play a key role in controlling which parts of the brain take control of specific functions, such as speech and emotion.

So being left handed MAY increase the chances of developing mental illness?

The worlds becoming a wierder and more dangerous place every day, it seems.

Everything we do seems to be dangerous, and now this - thankfully I'm a righty.

That's funny. My sister is a lefty and she got all the bad genes. Bi-polar, fibromyalgia...

Me... I'm God. The voices tell me so.
