Reasons why women live longer than men.

Image
In Australia, an average baby boy born in 2016 could expect to live to 80, while a baby girl born at the same time could expect to live until closer to 85. A similar gap in life expectancy between men and women is seen around the world.

 As we better understand why people die, we’re learning how biological and behavioural factors may partly explain why women live longer than men. Scientific advancements also impact the health of women and men differently. Biology and behaviour While women may live longer than men, they report more illnesses, more doctor visits and more hospital stays than men. This is known as the morbidity-mortality paradox (that is, women are sicker but live longer).

One explanation is that women suffer from illnesses less likely to kill them. Examples of chronic non-fatal illnesses more common in women include migraines, arthritis and asthma. These conditions may lead to poorer health, but don’t increase a woman’s risk of premature or early death. But men ar…

Image
President Donald Trump said Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is "a disgrace to herself and her family."

 Trump added that Pelosi's reported comments about wanting to see Trump "in prison" were "such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas." Earlier this week, while he was attending commemoration events for the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France, Trump called Pelosi a "disaster" and a "nasty, vindictive" person.

Pelosi, who is also in Normandy, told reporters that she had a policy of not criticizing the president while on foreign soil. "I don't talk about the president while I'm out of the country. That's my principle," she said. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

1) Colour of your food is important. Cut back on dark drinks such as coffee, cola, black tea or red wine. Those drinks not only stain your teeth, but also can weaken them over time. If you anyway love those drinks, try to use a straw while drinking them, to have less contact with your white teeth.
 2) What you eat affects your teeth. Avoid (or try to eat rarely) certain foods because they can change the colour of your teeth, such as: soy sauce, ketchup and almost all acidic foods and drinks (lemons, candies, sodas…) Instead, eat more nuts, whole grains, fruits and vegetables rich in fibre and, of course, our best friend is water.

Many freshly squeezed citrus fruits, for example, contain concentrated fr…
