Men are the Weaker Sex

Men are the Weaker Sex

Women have traditionally been considered the weaker sex, but that notion is incorrect if you consider the evidence. Women live longer than men in every society on earth. One reason is that men are more violent than women and much of the violence is directed toward other men. Women also have better cellular health than men. 

A University of Sydney, Australia study led by madeleine Beeckman speculated that women have stronger mitochondria than men. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cells and alos contain their own DNA that is seperate from the cell chromosomes. Mutations in mitochondrial DNA are more common in men than women, which leads to more disease and earlier death. (Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 369: 1471 – 2970, 2014)
