20 Reasons Why Women Live Longer Than Men

It’s long been understood that, for the most part, women tend to have a longer average life expectancy than men. While scientists have some theories on the issue, we think that these hilariously funny pictures might just account for the disparity.

In truth, there are some reasons for which women, statistically, have a chance to a longer life expectancy. Some have believed that this was due to the stresses placed on men, who have traditionally been considered bread-winners by the Western world, but the difference still stands in modern societies where women work just as much as men.

One reason scientists offer is that common heart diseases begin earlier in men as opposed to women. The varying degrees of iron deficiency that menstruation can cause in women also changes the way their cardiovascular cells react to heart disease. Another theory is that women’s double X chromosomes (as opposed to men’s XY) might also confer certain advantages. There’s also the so-called “testosterone storm” that affect men in their 20s, during which they tend to engage in dangerous or self-destructive behaviors. It turns out that the funny men behavior isn’t because they’re slightly stupid – it’s nature.

There are many biological theories behind why women live longer than men, but we’re sure that behavior like the epic safety fails in these pictures isn’t helping. Live and learn, guys, how to avoid the hilariously funny, yet very lethal construction fails!

Actually, the real reason women live longer than men is that they are shorter and lighter than men. My assessment is based on looking at 30 developed countries in terms of differences in height and life expectancy between men and women. This analysis revealed that men were 8% taller than women and had an 8% shorter life expectancy. These numbers represented averages for the 30 countries. Individual countries showed larger variations. These findings are consistent with 1992 studies showing taller men showed the same inverse relation when compared to shorter men. Numerous studies have also found that that shorter men and women live longer as well. Note that before 1840, men and women had about the same life expectancy. This reason for this is probably due to the high incidence of female deaths during the process of giving birth. Today, fewer women die from child birth complications.
