Men at 100 are healthier than women
WHEN it comes to reaching 100, women hugely outnumber men, but researchers have discovered men who reach the milestone tend to be healthier.
Despite being outnumbered by female centenarians by more than four to one, 100year-old men were found to be less affected by serious diseases, a King’s College study found.
Amazingly, 100-year-olds of both sexes were healthier than those up to 25 years their junior, when it came to diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
Researchers believe if a person has lived that long without being affected, they may have an in-built resistance.
