Women are Biologically Stronger than Men: Study Says

Women are biologically stronger than men, a new study revealed that challenges the pre-conceived concept that males are stronger.

For the findings, researchers analyzed the death rates and they found that women are more likely to survive even in the worst of circumstances such as famines and epidemics and in nearly every case, women survived more than male.


Women live longer than men by six months to almost four years on average because of their biological factors such as genetics or hormones. Estrogen is probably the most widely known and discussed of all hormones, which boosts immune defenses of women’s body against infectious disease, the research claimed.

The team of researchers analyzed data of past 250 years for people whose lives were cut short by famine, disease or other misfortunes. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Their findings noted that “In all populations, they had lower mortality across almost all ages, and, with the exception of one slave population, they lived longer on average than men.”

The data shows that during the Irish potato famine life expectancy dropped from 38 years for both sexes, to 18.7 years for men and 22.4 years for women and in the Ukrainian famine life expectancy went from 41.58 to 7.3 years for men, and from 41.58 to 7.3 years for men, and from 45.93 years for women to 10.9 years.

The study results indicate that women have a survival advantage which is biologically natural.
