It’s Official!

It is what we all secretly thought - men are the weaker sex.

Well, at least when it comes to their immune systems – and yes, they really do suffer from much worse colds and ‘flu than women. So next time a man sniffles in your direction, have a bit of sympathy for him.

According to research done at Cambridge University, the male propensity to ‘live fast, die young’ means in evolutionary terms that their immune systems are not as good as women’s. This trend is also seen in the animal kingdom. The boffin who came up with this startling research said “maintaining the ability to mate was more important to men than getting better, yet for women it was the other way around”.
So now you know!

Thought for the day

‘It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help’
