Statistics show that the average woman lives 7 years longer than the average man. The gap isn’t the same in all parts of the world, so the difference varies. For example, the average length of a man’s life in industrialized countries is shorter, because of the hazardous working conditions.

However, after years of research, they found out that the gap is usually the result of the living conditions and lifestyle of men and genetics play a very small role.
