Poll on handedness.

Post by 1eye » Tue Aug 30, 2011 7:44 pm

Disabilities below the neck only. Do not include vision.

Pick one.

And don't pick anything if you are not disabled ("MS"/CCSVI).

Don't forget to factor in the percentage of lefthandedness vs. righthandedness in the general population. I have no idea how one would compute that, of course... :)

According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-handedness
A variety of studies suggest that 10% of the world population is left-handed.
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)

Re: Poll on handedness: unrelated to disability

Seems it doesn't matter what hand you use, your disability may be on either side, even though about 80% of people, like euphoniaa said, are right handed. It seems to be a straight 50/50 thing, which side will get disabled.

What about the people who have evenly split disability on both sides, and are ambidextrous? :)
