London: Women are more likely than men to survive in times of famine and epidemics, research has found. While it has long been known that women have a higher life expectancy than men in general, analysis of historical records stretching back years shows that women have, for example, outlived men on slave plantations in Trinidad, during famines in Sweden and through various measles outbreaks in Iceland. Even when mortality was very high for both sexes, women still outlived men, on average, by six months to four years, according to the report by Duke University in North Carolina.
Alfred Adler, one of the band of physicians whose minds were fertilized by the extravagant and yet fruitful theories of Freud, would reduce most mental disorders to the action of what he calls the 'inferiority complex. They have eaten of the fruit of the tree of knowledge and are smarting at the discovery of the inferiority of their social status—an inferiority revealed, it seems to them, even in those traditional forms of male behavior which pass for homage to the sex, such as the raising of the hat in salutation, the yielding of seats, and so on. Women care not so much for the vote, for the responsibility of guiding the Ship of State, as for relief from a humiliating position.
Women are more likely than men to survive in times of famine and epidemics, research published in the Journal of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has found. The datasets included seven groups of people for whom life expectancy was 20 years or under for one or both sexes. Girls born during the famine in Ukraine, for example, lived to the age of
Unexpected results of a systematic review on work exposures and musculoskeletal disorders. Women report more work-related musculoskeletal problems than men, particularly regarding afflictions of the neck and upper limbs The factors to which this inequality should be attributed are far from obvious, however. Men and women are sometimes described as if they inhabit different worlds-biologically, mentally, and socially.

Sex differences in mortality SDIM vary over time and place as a function of social, health, and medical circumstances. The magnitude of these variations, and their response to large socioeconomic changes, suggest that biological differences cannot fully account for sex differences in survival. We draw on a wide swath of mortality data, including probability of survival to age 70 by county in the United States, the Human Mortality Database data for 18 high-income countries sinceand mortality data within and across developing countries over time periods for which reasonably reliable data are available.
This article does not question the link between psychiatry and anti-feminism, but considers this history from another angle, by analysing the repercussions of this sexist standpoint on the shaping of medical knowledge, and conversely, on representations of female patients. Put differently, experts of the mind have had a troubling tendency to confuse a rejection of social conventions with mental illness. As a consequence, in the same way that homosexuals and dissidents Communards, anti-Franco-ists, anti-Putinists, etc.
Who says that women are the weaker sex? No way, Jose! Of coursewomen are stronger than men in many ways.

W omen live longer than men everywhere in the world — and the difference is particularly stark in high-income countries like Britain, according to data from the World Health Organisation WHO. WHO has applied a gender lens to its yearly analysis of global health statistics and found that in every region of the world men die younger than women and have fewer years of healthy life expectancy.
