It seems to have proven what we’ve always knew ladies… women are the stronger sex.
Last week, researchers suggested that women are genetically programmed to be more resistant to infections and even diseases such as cancer.
Writing in the journal Bio Essays, they said the secret is a woman’s extra copy of the female X chromosome.
In one study, scientists from Queen Mary, University of London, found that a woman’s immune system can beat a range of infections quicker and more effectively than a man’s.
So when they’re lying in bed and complaining about the Man-flu don’t worry ladies, chances are you’ve already had it and fought it off.
