Women may joke about ‘man flu’ but according to new research men really do suffer more when they have a cold. Give me a minute to digest this….are they kidding?
The study found that females have around twice as many white blood cells as males making the female immune system more effective at fighting off infections than the male system. So when a man rushes to his bed at the first sniff of a cold he may not be faking it, after all.
I seriously do not want my husband to read this! He is a big, tough strong man….until he gets sick! Then like most men, or at least all my friends husbands, he becomes the biggest baby ever! If we are both sick at the same time, he always claims that ‘his bug’ is simply worse than mine!
Do you believe this or do you think that your man is just milking any sort of sickness for all that it is worth?
Guys really are different in so many ways, like Brad Paisley sings about in “I’m Still A Guy”
