In recent days, a study has been published that explains why men die younger than women. In this sense, research has found the explanation in the loss of the Y chromosome in white blood cells, which is directly related to the appearance of heart disease.
The loss of this chromosome is directly linked to heart disease, which is strongly linked to mortality. So far, no clear fortuitous relationship had been discovered. But, the University of Uppsala (Sweden) revealed in an international study that the loss of the Y chromosome in white blood cells causes the development of diseases such as cardiac fibrosis, deficits in cardiac function and loss of human life due to cardiovascular diseases.
