This Is Why Women Live Longer Than Men

All across the world woman enjoy a longer life-span than men. On average they live between 5 and 10 years longer. This could be down to a number of factors including men drinking and smoking more… This is certainly the case in Russia where the average woman lives thirteen years longer than their male counterpart.
