    Well...it makes sense. Eg if you're giving data on amount of acceptable daily alcohol consumption, men and women should drink different amounts because women can't metabolise alcohol as efficiently as men. There are many difference between males and females in biology, so it isn't correct to make a blanket statement to cover both sexes.

    so how does number of deaths caused by smoking links to giving data separately for both sexes?
