Reason for Women’s Long Age in Comparison to Men Revealed

As per a Japanese study, reason has been revealed as what women live longer than men. As per a research carried out by a group of researchers from the Tokyo Medical and Dental University, women immune systems age gradually, in comparison to men.

Lead researcher Katsuiku Hirokawa said that with passage of time, defence system of body gets weak. This factor makes men prone to illnesses and has shorter life span than women.

The study, which has been published in the Immunity & Ageing journal, is based on the assessment of 356 healthy men and women. Study participants were aged between 20 and 90 and they were asked to provide their blood samples.

Study researchers assessed their blood samples and measured white blood samples and cytokines. After assessing the samples, it was revealed that -cell and B-cell lymphocytes declined at great rate among men in comparison to women.

"Our findings indicate that the slower rate of decline in these immunological parameters in women than that in men is consistent with the fact that women live longer than do men", said Prof Hirokawa.

Dr Donald Palmer from the Royal Veterinary College said that similar studies were carried out in mice and they have revealed the same result.
