“Men die at a faster rate than women; the overall mortality rate is 41% higher for men than for women, and it’s also higher for men for eight of the 10 leading causes of death (see Table 3). In addition, American men are 2.1 times more likely to die from liver disease, 2.7 times more likely to die from HIV/AIDS, 4.1 times more likely to commit suicide, and 3.8 times more likely to be murder victims than women.
Men die younger than women, and they are more burdened by illness during life. They fall ill at a younger age and have more chronic illnesses than women.”
