Erie, Pa -- Although the percentage of left-handed people among those over age 60 is lower than in the rest of the population, there is no indication that left-handedness leads to an early demise. Rather, a complex combination of factors combine so that fewer of the old and oldest old report left-handedness, according to a Penn State researcher.
