I have read on a website that women live longer than men. While it may seem unfair to males, it is true that women live longer than men. Beside from the number of medical conditions, it all boils down to one thing which is testosterone. What do you guys think? Do you guys think that its true ? share your views and thoughts here~ cheers

Women live longer thanmen because men retire at say 60 but women never retire from household chores.Their active lifestyles make thme live longer. A manstarts feelign old and unwanted after he retires but a woman has no time to think of all these things. In fact a woman becomes busier after her husband retires as she has to bear him 24 hours a day and does not get any respite.

I'm not sure exactly why women live longer. My guess would be men do harder work such as manual labor that takes its toll on the body over time. Its also proven men are more risky and impulsive. This would lead us to the fact more people die from accidents than anything else.
