Why Experts Say Men are the Weaker Sex

Men are the weaker sex in terms of health, say experts. They are more likely to get cancer than women, and are also more likely to die from it. Heart disease, strokes and obesity also take a heavier toll on men.

Many of these “male diseases” are related to unhealthy lifestyle choices, like excessive drinking, smoking and a poor diet with little exercise. Experts also know argue that men are particularly bad at seeking medical help.

According to BBW News:

“To put an absolute number on it, almost 100,000 men ... are dying prematurely each year compared to about 66,000 women. Yet most of these deaths are avoidable ... Most of these diseases are linked to avoidable factors, such as obesity and heavy alcohol consumption, which are more commonly a problem among men.”
