Left hand and schizophrenia

Hi all,i decided to wiki schizophrenia. Im reading a part about developing schizophrenia and one thing it states is that left handed people are more likely to develop schizophrenia then right handed people. Are any of you left handed? Im left handed so i thought that was interesting.

I actually did a poll on this ages ago. Most people were still right handed here if I remember correctly. Let me see if I can find it…

I guess I use the right hand most, but some tasks I can do ambidextrous, like using the computer mouse, using a mop, cleaning, drinking from a glass, holding a fork to mention the ones that come to me.

I am right handed and have sz. My brother is left handed and doesn’t have sz.

Majority of people are right handed, but if say 5 percent of people are left handed and they make up say 10 percent of schizophrenics then there might be something there.

I’m left handed and have sza. Everyone else in my family is right handed and does not have mental illness
