112. Tomb of Eve (yes, Adam's wife) is located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where she died.

in fact the very name of the city Jeddah (more accurately Jaddah) is Arabic for "Grandmother", in reference to Eve.

the presence of the TOMB itself is a fact.

Again a study done in 1980 by Halpern & Coren implied that left-handed people had an average life expectancy of 9 years less than right-handed people. However, the data was not considered credible since it was based only on second-hand information gathered from the next-of-kin of recently deceased persons who were right and left-handed. The findings of researchers revealed that left-handed average age of death was 66 and the right-handed average age was 75.


However, that second-hand survey data used in the Halpern & Coren study is not a reliable methodology and only a few number of sample sizes were used. The research made by Aggleton, Bland, Kentridge, & Neave in the British Medical Journal does not agree on the theory that left-handed people die earlier.

But there are some evidences that left-handed women may have a shorter life span than right-handed women. A recent Dutch study indicated that left-handed women had a 40 percent higher risk of dying from any cause. They have a 70 percent higher risk of dying from cancer, and a 30 percent higher risk of dying from diseases of the circulatory system. Left-handed women also had a 2 times increased risk of dying from breast cancer, close to a 5 times increased risk of dying from colorectal cancer, and more than 3 times higher risk of cerebro-vascular mortality.
So that "fact" was based on the results of the study in bold.

Fair enough. Looks more like theory than fact.

Yeah. I copied the "fact" from a site without checking the exact source.
