Studies have shown that women are still living longer than men.
In America, the average life expectancy rate was revealed to be 78 years and about 2 months. So if you live in America, you should expect to live that long. Studies have shown that Americans are living longer today than they did in the past but American women are living the longest.
A good thing if you are a woman I guess!!
According to studies men in the United States can to live up to the age of 75 years and perhaps 7 months whereas women according to experts can expect to grow to the age of 80 years and 6 months before they die.
Up till today, scientists cannot still pinpoint the exact reason women all over the world tend to have a higher life expectancy rate than men.
Some have attributed the reason women live longer than men to the fact that men tend to have more stressful lives than women and as we all know, stress can have a very devastating impact on our lives. Stress kills. So I guess this is a reason women live longer than men as they are not exposed to the kind of stress men are exposed to. Some other reason why many think that women live longer than men is because men tend to practice more unhealthy lifestyles as compared to women. Men engage in wild lifestyles like fighting, gun violence, drug use, and drunk driving among others which increase their risks of dying earlier. Although some women also engage in these wild lifestyles more men do it way more than women.
These are just some of the reasons believed to be the reason women will always live longer than men. Presently in America, women are living 5 years longer then men.
