Kenyan men. Women experience higher stress, more chronic disease, more depression, more anxiety and are more likely to be victims of violence. Women earn less than men, and in many countries they don’t have the same human rights as men. but yet Men are likely to die earlier than Women.
Here are some of the Reasons both scientific and social that tend to explain why women live longer than Kenyan men
1. DNA mechanisms – Chromosomes come in pairs, and whereas women have two X chromosomes, men have an X and a Y chromosome.That difference may subtly alter the way that cells age. Having two X chromosomes, women keep double copies of every gene, meaning they have a spare if one is faulty. Men don’t have that back-up. The result is that more cells may begin to malfunction with time, putting men at greater risk of disease.
2. Joggling female heart – Kenyan woman’s heart rate increases during the second half of the menstrual cycle, offering the same benefits as moderate exercise. The result is delayed risk of cardiovascular disease later in life. Or it could also be a simple matter of size
3. Testosterone, on the other hand, increases blood levels of the bad cholesterol and decreases levels of good cholesterol. This puts men at greater risk of hypertension, heart disease and stroke.
Testosterone puts Kenyan men at risk biologically, but it also puts men at risk behaviorally. It increases aggressiveness, and, in a cascading effect, results in higher death rate from accidents and homicide.
4. Bad lifestyle – Factors such as smoking, drinking, and overeating may partly explain why size of the gender gap varies so widely between countries. Kenyan men are so much at risk with this
