7 Facts About Women That Make Them Different From Men

Back in Ancient Greece, many people saw women as totally different species from men. They often used this as a way to say that men were of a “better” species than women. However, time has passed, and thanks to science, we now know that men and women are almost exactly the same and share 98.5 percent DNA (1). You’ve probably heard plenty of things like “Men are from Mars” and “Women are from Venus,” but this isn’t true. We’re all from planet Earth and have more similarities than differences. Of course, there are some obvious differences between men and women (like the ability to carry a child), but you may not even know about plenty of other differences. Men and women even have certain hormones in common, like testosterone (albeit, women have lower levels of the hormone). So here are seven facts about women that make them different from men:

1. Women Have A Lower Body Temperature

If you feel like your girlfriend’s hands are constantly cold, there’s some reason why this is so. If you look at a woman’s hands on a thermal scanner, you would see that it is 37¬ļ F lower than a man’s hands. This is because women tend to have a lower muscle mass than men and have a higher ratio of surface area to volume. This results in them losing heat at a much faster rate than their male counterparts. So the next time your girlfriend asks to put her hands under your shirt and borrow some warmth, let her (2)!

Any pregnant woman will tell you how much she hates suffering from morning sickness. However, morning sickness is actually not a bad sign and is totally normal for pregnant women. If a woman faces excess morning sickness, then it may be a bit of a problem. This might be a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum, which could lead to fetal death if left unchecked (3).

3. Women Have Better Hearing Than Men

Plenty of women complain about their husbands/boyfriends not listening to them, and there may be some truth to it. Research has shown that women have a better sense of hearing than men do and can tell high-pitched noises when they are babies. A girl who is just one week old is able to tell her mom’s voice apart from the crying of other babies. The skill is not just useful for babies but also for women as they grow older. Many women can catch the slightest change in the pitch of their voice and may even be able to tell if people are being truthful or not (4).

4. Women Have Better Immunity

Estrogen is a hormone that is more present in women than in men and is responsible for suppressing inflammation. This means that women can recover from and deal with illnesses a lot faster than men. Estrogen can also slow down the aging process in women, and hence they are more likely to live longer than men (5).

5. Women Have A Higher Amount Of Fatty Tissue

Women tend to put on weight much faster than men and have a higher percentage of body fat in their bodies than men do. This is mainly because of the reproductive abilities of women and estrogen. Women need to carry a certain percentage of fat around their hips and waist to protect their fetuses when they are pregnant. If a woman’s body fat drops too low, she will stop menstruating and will be unable to carry a baby to full term (until she puts on a bit more weight). Women tend to carry more body fat around their thighs and hips, while men carry weight on and around their stomachs. Women also tend to burn fast when they exercise, while men burn carbohydrates instead (6).

6. Women Have A Better Sense Of Taste

Women have a way better sense of taste and smell than men do. They have around fifty cells (neurons) more than men in their olfactory bulbs. This is the part of the brain that is responsible for processing smells. Women also have more taste buds than men do and hence have a better sense of taste as well (7).

7. Women Live Longer Than Men

There are many reasons why women live longer than men. This has been the case across the globe for many years now. Some of the factors that come in between are stress, lifestyle habits (men smoke more than women do). In many societies, men work more than women do and are hence more likely to suffer from stress and getting (8)

Bayas

Recomiendo una porci√≥n diaria de  bayas  (media taza fresca o congelada, o un cuarto de taza seca) y tres porciones diarias de otras frutas (una fruta de tama√Īo mediano, una fruta cortada en taza, o un cuarto de taza seca).  ¿Por qu√© selecciono las bayas? Ar√°ndano Frambuesa Fresa Grosella Espinosa Grosella Negra Grosella Roja Baya de Acai Baya de Gota B√©rbero Las bayas son las frutas m√°s saludables, debido en parte a sus pigmentos vegetales. Evolucionaron para tener colores brillantes y contrastantes que atraen a las criaturas que comen frutas para ayudar a dispersar sus semillas, y las mismas caracter√≠sticas moleculares que dan a las bayas esos colores tan vibrantes pueden explicar algunas de sus capacidades antioxidantes. Las bayas est√°n en segundo lugar, despu√©s de las hierbas y las especias, como la categor√≠a de alimentos con mayor contenido de antioxidantes. Como grupo, tienen un promedio de casi 10 veces m√°s antioxidantes que otras frutas y verduras, y superan 50 veces m√°s que lo
