  1. Fulltext. Left-handedness and mortality.

    Article - En anglais


    We examined mortality associated with handedness in two ways.

    A simulation using national data suggests that lower mean age at death among left-handed persons, previously offered as evidence of higher mortality, can be explained exclusively by the age distribution of laterality.

    Second, empiric evidence from a 6-year cohort study of 3774 odler adults from East Boston, Massachusetts, demonstrates that left-handedness is not associated with mortality (relative odds=1.04, 95% confidence interval=0.79, 1.36).
