As it turns out, Rather than they 50-50 split there are more males born than females. And even more surprising external economic and environmental factors can vary the birth ratio of boys to girls. Although more boys are born, it appears males are more susceptible to a host of diseases, injuries and more, and soon women outnumber men. Through attrition by such factors as a higher death rate is born premature, sudden infant death syndrome, accidents, and infections, by the age of 36 women outnumber men Maybe women are not really the weaker sex. As teenagers, boys die at twice the rate of girls due to accidents and men have fewer infection-fighting T-cells and are thought to have weaker immune systems than women.
