Most studies are done on men. Sorry, but that's a fact of life that has only been changing recently. Problem is, men and women ARE different.
Case in point, cholesterol levels. For women, optimal cholesterol levels are a straight line where the higher the cholesterol, the longer the lifespan. For men, it's a U-shaped curve with a sweet spot in the middle. So if you tell everyone that their cholesterol levels should be at that sweet spot, then you would be telling women the wrong thing.
If you tell everyone that high cortisol increases estrogen, you would be telling men the correct thing. But for women, it increases testosterone, not estrogen.
If you tell everyone the symptoms of a heart attack are chest or shoulder pain, then you would be telling men the correct thing. But for women, it's usually jaw pain.
So women ARE very different from men. Not better or worse, just different. I work with men all day, I have one I'm completely in love with, and I have 2 sons that I adore. I genuinely LIKE men. But men don't have babies or periods or menopause or a uterus or massive hormone swings. And that's okay.
But the health advice that applies to men doesn't always work for women. Like how most of the ways you can fix a Ford apply to a Chevy. But not everything. Some parts are different, and some repairs are going to be different.
I think this thread was just a way to post about things women need to understand that don't apply to men.
