Drug trials, calculation of doses of the vaccine or the search for causes of disease were carried out in the rule, always to men.

tagesschau24 : where are the gender-specific differences in diseases?
Daniela Remus: is A reason that the behavior of men and women, if you look at the gender stereo typical, is different.

This leads back to the fact that men simply have a different behavior than women; that you have frequently changing sex partners and less likely to prevent.

This leads back to the fact that women have much more contact with children or with old people, because they maintain the. That is, the role of images, where one lives in this role, arrest, quite often also have an impact on diseases.
