Men than women, life short five reasons, the time :2012-03-10
The researchers of the University of Michigan released a survey report on male life expectancy, the report said, men far not as strong as we think. Due to pressure from all sides, male life expectancy, continues to shorten men’s health, are facing unprecedented threats.
The latest survey did not give the male and female life expectancy difference is, saying only that the chance of death of the young males, three times higher than women.
Years by the World Health Organization and the Organization of the United Nations Population Survey statistics show that the average male life expectancy is shorter than women 5-10 years, and, in some countries, this difference increased year by year.
For example, in China in the 1970s, more men than women live at least one year; at least 2 years in the 1980s, 1990s, less four years into the 21st century, at least 5 years.
In the United States, general statistics, short-lived for seven years more men than women
In Russia, more men than women, short-lived for 10 years.
Why do men have shorter life expectancy than women?
Why do men have shorter life expectancy than women? This is the topic and the fact that since the human evolution, a constancy. There is a easy to read leavened say: men do not cry easily, men have something to say do not love that men are sick do not go, a man unwilling to return home. In fact, the conclusion is not enough, because the factors of male life expectancy is shorter than women, including some men other personality, physical characteristics and social pressures. For example, the basal metabolism of male and try to be brave, and the lifestyle is not very good, feisty, adventurous, Huoqi Da, alcoholism and so on.
Why do men have shorter life expectancy than women?
1, eat more, will be short-lived
The sexes are born with physical differences, which the male basal metabolism, 5% -7% higher than women, that is, the energy consumption than women. As early as the 1930s Clyde McAdoo, Cornell University nutritionist with mice do an experiment, a group of mice does not provide adequate food, only to ensure that the nutrition necessary for their survival. Another group of rats is an adequate supply of food, let them free feeding, eat, eat the number of how many.
The results showed that free-feeding group of rats, 175 days, bones stop growing;
Restrictions on feeding groups of rats, 500 days later, bone growth is still slow. Free-feeding group of mice the average life expectancy of only 2.5 years, limit feeding the rats of group life is 3-4 years. The researchers believe that the damaging free radicals produced in less feeding a corresponding reduction in the human DNA and cell damage is also reduced as a result of aging will slow down. This may explain – why eat a lot of men, always shorter than women to eat less to live.
2, the sun, life shortened
Compared with women, men lifestyle, is neither scientific nor healthy. For example, men like smoking, drinking, cigarettes and alcohol in modern society, human life and health of the most ferocious killers, but the damage to the men than women. Russian men than women, low life, vodka has played an important role. In addition, the eating habits of the male is often devour or often eat too much, which men the incidence of stomach, 6.2 times higher than women on average. Moreover, men generally eat fat and protein foods than women, studies have shown that eating too much fat and protein is an important reason for the occurrence of colorectal cancer. At the same time, a considerable number of men do not pay attention to the sun, do not pay attention to skin cancer checks, and therefore the possibility of a man who died of melanoma is twice that of a woman’s.
3, the man is too aggressive gaining the upper hand
Androgen in men in the blood is irritability, aggressive, feisty important reason. During the war years, on the battlefield of men, which naturally understand – why men are short-lived, because the war took the lives of a large number of men. However, in the modern age of peace, men, feisty character, the same is caused by an important incentive for killed, and thus their shorter life expectancy than women. For example, the feisty and drunk driving, the chance of the men died in a car accident, is twice that of women.
A Swedish survey showed that the casualties on the highway, 70% is caused by male drivers; traffic accidents in the city, 60% of male drivers. Spain’s traffic accident statistics show that traffic accidents, the proportion of male and female drivers, 60% than 40%.
Some other EU countries and the United States, statistics show that the higher the ratio of the male driver of traffic accidents, about 70%;
The driver only accounts for about 30%.
Because the male body, male hormones are at play, it often stimulates the men conceited, while overtaking, its psychology has also been a meet: Look, my superb driving skills and more, the other is simply a side of melon, technology also insisted occupied the road. Such a result, often collided with the front of the normal driving vehicles while overtaking, the result is a car crash. In this regard, women are just the opposite, almost impossible to crash. Direct victims of the accident the driver, so short-lived of men far outnumber women.
4, menstruation a woman’s exercise tolerance
Compared with men, women crying; if the men at every turn tears are seen as weak, no man, even without strong man tears dare not flow, which had a tremendous impact on the health and life. Tears can not only relieve the pressure of the heart and relieve the emotional, physical, toxic substances are discharged from the tears. Men do not stream the results, of course, is caused by the deterioration of their health status over time, will have a negative impact.
Women’s unique physiological phenomenon, but also the women’s endurance and survival ability. For example, women in January time period, trained to have a tolerance of women, especially in the ability to survive the disaster. Under the same conditions without food or drink and blood loss, the male may be the first death in the female a few days or even earlier; easier for women to adhere to the arrival of rescue personnel to successfully survive from the disaster.
5, the attitude is life
Man home do not want to back the biggest reason is the social requirements of the indomitable spirit of men, in order to succeed, the port in order to support the family burnt, the men must overload of work and pay, but also in the unit or at home, men are required to support the facade, so The men work than women are more nervous, the pressure to bear, than women or more, therefore, a man suffering from myocardial infarction hospitalized proportion, which is 7-10 times that of a woman’s.
Finally, the men of their own health and the body attitude has affected their life. The United States, a survey showed that 82% of men on a regular basis for their car maintenance; only 50% of male physical examinations on a regular basis. This has resulted in men disease are not aware of, in the disease boil dry, serious illness, died suddenly. If men can timely discovery of his body strange, timely diagnosis and treatment can significantly reduce the morbidity and mortality.
Although male life expectancy is shorter than the female is an indisputable fact, but, as long as today’s men follow the four principles of healthy living, it is possible to prolong life, and even live longer than women. These four principles, a reasonable diet, regular exercise, quit alcohol limit, and psychological balance.
