Do females live longer than males?
I was just curious because I've heard that it's true...
I've heard that it's true.
My professor has a theory that women live longer because of the fact that we have children.
He thinks that, when a woman becomes pregnant, her body automatically does healthier things. It uses nutrients more efficiently and uses everything to the max.
I don't know if it's true, but it's an interesting concept.
One major reason is that they take more risks e.g. more likely to ride a motorcycle, join the forces and go to war, get into fights, climb trees or on rooves as kids. Of approximamtely 90 guys in my year at school, 2 were killed in accidents whilst at school, and one more about 3 months after leaving. All the girls survived.
My opinion regarding it is because there are more men and if you have a higher population of people or animal then you tend to get more illnesses and birth defects among them.
yes, but there are also more men born than women
Yes, it is true in general.
