Moški umiramo mlajši, ker ...

Tudi prenovljena lizbonska strategija bo imela primerno dozo zaskrbljenosti v zvezi z enakopravnostjo spolov, npr:

Equal opportunities and combating discrimination are essential for progress. Gender mainstreaming and the promotion of gender equality should be ensured in all action taken.

Ne vem sicer, če to pomeni kake ukrepe, da se pričakovana življenjska doba moških izenači z ženskami. Verjetno ne. Ampak ravno med prebiranjem teh lizbonskih vsebin sem opazil članek, ob katerem se da vsaj cinično nasmehniti:

Chasing females can take years off life
From lions to antelope and from sea lions to deer, males, for some reason, simply can't go the distance. One theory is that males must compete for female attention. That means evolution is busy selecting for antlers, aggression and alloy wheels in males, at the expense of longevity.
Saj to kar piše v naslovu nekako vemo, ne? Članek pa gre dlje od samoumevnega.
