Scientists have released report after report, citing the fact that women live longer than men. In fact, a 2015 article for the BBC stated that women live on average 5% longer than their male counterparts! In it, author David Robson attempted to assess the many reasons that he believed could contribute to this difference in lifespan – from eating habits to alcohol consumption, he analyzed and reported but couldn’t find a solid reason to explain the difference.

He cited a scientific report discussing the differences in longevity between the sexes, stating, “This remarkably consistent survival advantage of women compared with men in early life, in late life, and in total life is seen in every country in every year for which reliable birth and death records exist.”

That’s right, as long as birth records have existed, women have been living longer than their male counterparts. One has to begin to wonder if the answer to this may, to some degree, be right under our noses. How often do we find ourselves looking at the decisions that the men in our lives have made, and thinking ‘Yep, that right there is why you aren’t going to live as long.’

From testosterone fueled attempts to prove their manliness to epic attempts to choose laziness over safety, these pictures are going to provide what we believe is some valuable insight into the reason why men just don’t live as long!
