Women live longer but die quicker

The average life expectancy of a man is 75 years which is more than five years shorter than that of a woman. 

On average, men at any age are 40% more likely to die than women.  And when diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease or hypertension are diagnosed in men, they tend to be at a far later stage in the disease process, after extensive damage has already been done.
