Es un hecho universalmente conocido que los hombres tienen menos esperanza de vida que las mujeres, y solo desde hace poco hemos dejado de ver esta tendencia como algo natural. La Dra. Marianne Legato, profesora de medicina en la Universidad de Columbia, analiza las razones por las que los hombres son mas proclives a las enfermedades, como por ejemplo su poca disposicion a hablar abiertamente con el medico o su predisposicion biologica para ciertas enfermedades, y explica lo que deben hacer para vivir mas años con mayor salud. / It is a universal fact that men die before women. But the causes of this have long remained unexplored. In this trailblazing book, Dr. Marianne Legato--an expert in gender specific health--examines the reasons behind men's fragility and explains what they need to do to live longer. A bestselling author and Professor of Medicine at Columbia University, Dr. Legato shows how the forces of culture and biology conspire against male mortality. Drawing on the latest research and narrated through the lives of her patients, she delves into problems that both men and women care about-- from why the male fetus is at greater risk, to why boys have a hard time adjusting to school, to how elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol make men more prone to aggression and why they are more likely to die from cardiac arrest or cancer and even depression.
