I've always read benefits of being (or learning to be) ambidextrous until this Scientific American article from Michael Corballis that says it is not that helpful and it can even harm your brain, as each brain hemisphere has specific tasks to do:

The two hemispheres of the brain are not interchangeable.

Are there any strong evidence that supports that being ambidextrous can be bad for your health?
