Genes that are activated in our body closer to the end of his life, unable to explain why elderly women health are much worse than men .
Scientists have long haunted the answer to this question, given that men statistically die before women, reports Science Daily.
A team of researchers from the University of Exeter believe that the same genes have different effects on both genders.
Scientists used mathematical models and experimental data on the fly to show how genes can be hurt if they are activated after the termination of reproductive age women.
“In principle, certain genes may be good for men but bad for women, and Vice versa,” says Professor David Hosken (David Hosken).
The fact that men and women have a common genome, which is the accumulation of genes disrupted after menopause. Genes accumulate and activate various diseases.
Professor Hosken said, it is important to note that the longevity and healthy old age is not the same thing. And there may be differences in health indicators in that men can continue to reproduce after the age when a women begins the menopause.
Experimental data on the fly-Drosophila confirmed by the results of mathematical models on the people.
An early study of a group of scientists from the University of California attempted to explain why men die on average 5% more often than women.
Doctors found that estrogen actually stimulates the activity of an enzyme that elongates the telomeres and thus extends the life. In fact, because of this, women’s telomeres often than the men’s.
Recall the way of thinking in men and women do differ.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” junk-food junkies often suffer from depression.
Also “Znayu” he wrote that any duplicate playlist sooner or later begins to annoy, but, according to some psychologists of music, Christmas melodies can also do harm.
