What makes a person left-handed?

Why is being left-handed so rare?
So why are lefties so rare? Scientists have long tried to answer this. In 2012, researchers at Northwestern University developed a mathematical model to show that the percentage of left-handed people was a result of human evolution — specifically, a balance of cooperation and competition.
What is the difference between left and right handers?
Researchers have identified, for the first time, the genetic differences between right-handed and left-handed people. In left-handed people, both sides of the brain tend to communicate more effectively. This means that left-handed people may have superior language and verbal ability.
Is it harder for lefties to write?
