    Not surprising, you have some women who are massively fat and other women who believe they can live on 1000 calories per day.

    This is probably less to do with diet and exercise than the increase in women entering the workplace.

    All the time women stayed at home with their feet up, playing with the kids, running a duster round and knocking up a quick meal for the hardworking father, they lived longest. Of course they did, they led very stress free lives, no worries, little wear and tear on their bodies, flowers, chocolates and treats from the breadwinner.

    Now that they are out at work, not just doing traditional low impact 'makework' jobs like shopwork or charlady, but proper jobs, they are finding that they are not nearly as robust and stress resistent as men and are set to suffer for it with a reduced lifespan.

    The article does not say that men will be a greater number than women, but that on average they will live longer.

    My question is which gender is genetically programmed to live longer.

    Seems unlikely, since women outlive men in every country on earth.

    You do. for example, I have a massively fat belly and skinny legs. I especially look good in a mankini.

    You know what I meant, so to say that you get massively fat women, and really skinny women, means nothing, as you get the same in men.

    Higher % of females are obese than males, a higher % of females suffer from anorexia than males. Men exercise more than females.
