Battle of the sexes: Things women do better than men
Women graduate college more often, have healthier diets and even though ladies are often branded bad drivers, they're 27 percent less likely to cause a crash. It appears women are winning the battle of the sexes and there are stats to back it up.
Guys think they're so tough, but when it comes to immunity, longevity and financial ability, they've got nothing on the ladies.
A McGill University study shows women have stronger immune systems. The research shows estrogen makes them better at fighting off infections than men.
That could be why women live longer. On average, men die five to ten years sooner than women. And the New England Centenarian study states 85 percent of the people on Earth who live past 100 years old are women.
According to Cosmopolitan magazine, a study of 100,000 portfolios found female investors made 18 percent in returns, while men made 11 percent.
Studies show women are also more recession-proof. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 80 percent of those who have lost their jobs since December 2007 have been men.
