June 3, 2005: I'm just curious about the genetics of handedness. Both of my parents are left-handed, both myself and my brother are right-handed. My husband and I are both right-handed and we have 2 children, one's a lefty and one's a righty. My husband's parents are both righties. It's just something I've always wondered about since we studied genetics in 6th grade and the teacher told us that handedness was Mendelian like eye color, but couldn't explain why I'm a righty (no doubt wondering if maybe I was adopted, which I wasn't, lol!)

October 1, 2004: My 27 year old son died in March 2004. He was quadriplegic due to an assault 6 years ago. The hospital said he had a septic infection. He was awake and talking and then they were putting on a respirator and his heart stopped. They got it going twice more. He never woke up and died 8 hours later. The coroner said all tests and cultures were negative. His DNA went to the state. Will they be able to tell why he died from testing his DNA?
