Why do women live longer then men?

Men and women both experience most of the same effects of ageing but in only two countries in the world do men outlive women - believe it or not Afghanistan is one of those countries.

If you live in the right geography you can listen to a BBC World Service programme (15 mins) about the subject that tries to explain the reasons and to predict if it will continue as the lifestyles of the genders converge. Fascinating stuff. Dick Stroud
