A study report by Finnish academics has once and for all settled the debate of life expectancy between men and women. The study, published in Journals of Gerontology, unveiled that women are biologically four years younger than men.
Anna Kankaanpaa, the lead researcher and author of the study, said they have found that men are biologically older in comparison to women of the same chronological age. The research was conducted through data from thousands of volunteers. The scientists estimated the decline of the body by examining the marks present in human DNA.
British men have a total life expectancy of 79 years, while women live up to 83 years. Similarly, American women live five years more than the average American men.
