Worldwide, considering the average, it is women who have the longest life, according to data presented in the annual report of the World Health Statistics and the World Health Organization (WHO).
One of the factors pointed out for this is health care: they take care of themselves less than they do.
Among the data that stood out the most in the report, it was possible to see that life expectancy in the 2000s was 66 years, while in 2016 it increased by 5.5 years, to 72.
However, in countries where society’s average income is lower, life expectancy is 18.1 years less compared to wealthier countries.
In addition, as mentioned above, the difference between genders was also seen in the results.
They take care of themselves more
In the past 16 years, men have lived an average of 4.4 years less than women. According to the WHO, in developed countries the differences may be even greater.
Of the 40 deadliest causes in the world, 33 affect men more than women.
