According to the study reported by the Australian Daily, most men are afraid of heat, so "cold" men live longer; But women are afraid of cold, so women with "hot" points live longer, which is also true in the eyes of medical experts. Now let's understand the basis of this statement? Is it reasonable or not?
"Cold" men live longer
There is a classic analogy in the bestseller "Men from Mars, Women from Venus": men come from Mars with an average temperature of minus 23 ℃, and women come from Venus with a surface temperature of up to 450 ℃. Men and women have different perceptions of temperature: in the cold winter, women's cotton-padded clothes are tightly wrapped, or their hands and feet are cold and shivering, while men are still energetic in their thin shirts; In the scorching summer, women can go shopping in the sun and eat hot pot with sweat, while men can cry bitterly even if they sit still.
Cold men and hot women are the key to longevity
A few days ago, Justin Eliot, the Minister of the Federal Ministry of Elderly Affairs of Australia, released the list of the oldest regions in the country: the oldest region for women is the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, with an average life expectancy of 84.7 years; Men live the longest in the cooler Melbourne - Canberra area, with an average life of 80 years. Statistically, women living in warm and sunny areas live longer, while men living in cool climates live longer. This rule also applies globally. Investigators analyzed that climate will affect people's psychological and physiological aspects, and then affect life expectancy.
So why are men afraid of heat and women afraid of cold? David, an American biophysics professor, explained that men have more muscles, eat more and metabolize faster, so their body surface is warmer than women's. From a physiological point of view, women are more sensitive to cold than men, and the "temperature sensor" in men's skin is more sluggish, not enough to "know cold and heat". So even when the temperature is low, men are still warm and women are cold.
Yang Li, a professor of health care at Xiyuan Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, told the reporter of the Life Times that in terms of traditional Chinese medicine, women are born with cold yin, so they are afraid of cold; Men are naturally hot, so they are afraid of heat. From a physiological point of view, the difference in the reproductive system between men and women also causes their temperature "difference". The testicles in the male reproductive organs are not resistant to high temperature. It needs to maintain a lower temperature than the body temperature, otherwise it will damage the sperm. The uterus of a woman is like an inverted pear, which is cool. If you don't keep warm, you will have irregular menstruation and dysmenorrhea. Therefore, women need more warm care.
Dongzhimen Hospital of Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine once conducted a study. After evaluating the quality of life and physical symptoms of 726 sub-healthy people, it was found that the first symptom of male sub-healthy people was the fear of heat, while women were the most afraid of cold.
