Women moan more about poor health than men

Women moan more about poor health than menLondon, March 26 : Women may crib about their poor health more than men but they are less likely to die than men, official research in Britain has showed.

Researchers discovered that women aged between 35 and 74 years and who said they were unwell were more likely to be alive five years later than men who said they were in poor health, Daily Express reported Friday.

The report, called Population Trends, has shown the link between self-rated health and mortality.

It was also found that women were more likely than men to say that they were in "not good" or "fairly good" health.

The research was carried out by the Office of National Statistics.

Those who were divorced, separated or who never married were more likely to have poorer health and were also likely to die in the five-year follow-up period than those who were married, the report said.(IANS)
