Default *Interesting*

i read that left handed people are more likely to suffer from depression and Schizophrenia and the most people that commit suicide are left handed, because they use the other side of the brain with is also the side of the brain that causes Schizophrenia.

i was just wondering who is left handed becuase i don't believe this fact untill proven. or anyone else that knows anymore about this?

It's complete b*ll*cks. The hand you write with and your dominant brain hemisphere have absolutely nothing to do with schizophrenia, depression or anything else for that matter.

The most solid evidence for the development of disoders like schizophrenia, depression, OCD etc comes from a dormant gene which is triggered by stressful and traumatic experiences. Chemical imbalances is another one the professionals are fond of. But nowhere is there the slightest mention of dominant brain hemispheres.
