LiveScience.com - Men Pay the Ultimate Price to Attract Women: "While it is tough to be a woman, being a man can be downright deadly.

Women live longer than men. And now scientists suggest a simple Darwinian reason: Competing for a mate can wear a guy out or get him killed.

'Women live longer in almost every country, and the sex difference in lifespan has been recognized since at least the mid-18th century,' said Daniel Kruger at the University of Michigan. 'It isn't a recent trend; it originates from our deep evolutionary history.'

The idea is presented in the spring edition of the journal Human Nature."
