Men and women get sick differently

Sci­en­tists do not stop com­par­ing the male and female body. It turns out that men and women suf­fer dif­fer­ent­ly.

For exam­ple, the brain of a man has a large mass, and the brain of a woman is more “rest­less and indus­tri­ous.” Women remem­ber infor­ma­tion longer and bet­ter. This is due to increased activ­i­ty in an area of ​​the brain called the hip­pocam­pus. The hip­pocam­pus is respon­si­ble for “trans­port­ing” infor­ma­tion to the cere­bral cor­tex for long-term stor­age. At the same time, women are more prone to migraines and are at risk of devel­op­ing so-called neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases. In par­tic­u­lar, in the weak­er sex, Alzheimer’s dis­ease man­i­fests itself more acute­ly and pro­gress­es faster than in the oppo­site sex.



Women get depressed and men are prone to schizophrenia

Due to the pecu­liar­i­ties of the work of the female brain, the beau­ti­ful half of soci­ety is more like­ly to become depressed. This is due to the lim­bic sys­tem, which is respon­si­ble for emo­tion­al infor­ma­tion pro­cess­ing. Women per­ceive what is hap­pen­ing around them more acute­ly, they often expe­ri­ence anx­i­ety, which leads to dis­rup­tion of sleep, diet, and then to depres­sion.

Lack of sleep leads to a decrease in reproductive function in men


Men are more like­ly to have neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­eases. For exam­ple, Parkin­son’s dis­ease often affects the male body. The rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the stronger sex are more often diag­nosed with schiz­o­phre­nia, while the dis­ease itself is more severe than in women.
