Why Do Women Live Longer Than Men ?

It's about time we put an end to the myth of men's supremacy over women.

It’s about time we seriously consider a well-established fact: no matter their age, men die in greater numbers than women. Statistically, women live on average 8 to 10 years longer than men; where can this weak spot come from? Are men more biologically vulnerable? Does their social conduct wear them out prematurely? The big surprise is that this assessment is worldwide. With few exceptions, this difference in longevity holds true in most populations, including in developing countries. Women are resistant to a point which men simply cannot equal!
