Why Women Bury Men: The Longevity Gap in Canada
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungMost women will spend the last years of their lives alone. On average, they live six years longer than men. Biologically women are the stronger sex, but the reasons for the six-year difference have less to do with biology and more to do with lifestyles. "Why Women Bury Men" looks at the risk factors for the leading causes of death in Canada--smoking, heavy drinking, over-eating, and driving without due care--and finds men are over-represented. Socialized to be risk-takers, men make lifestyle choices that lead to premature death and take away precious years of active life gained with each new generation.
