The Ten Oldest People To Ever Live Were All Women
Its very interesting to dicover that the ten oldest people to Ever live were all women. That number is too big to be a statistical coincidence.
The oldest people who ever lived
The honour for the person who ever lived goes to the woman Jeanne Calment of France (1875–1997), who lived to age 122 years and 164 days. In contrast, the oldest man who ever lived is Jiroemon Kimura of Japan (1897–2013), who lived to age 116 years and 54 days.

Why women generally live longer than men
According to the CDC, the average American man will live to age 76, while the average woman in America will live to age 81.
So we decided to reasearch why women generally live longer than men. According to medical experts the gap is due to a combination of biological and social differences such as:
- men’s hormone testosterone which actually decreases the strength of the immune system as men grow older.
- other unhealthy eating habits.
“This gender gap in life expectancy is true for all societies, and it is also true for the great apes,” says Dr. Perminder Sachdev, a professor of neuropsychiatry at the University of New South Wales in Australia who has studied human longevity.
“Men are more likely to smoke, drink excessively and be overweight,” he says. “They are also less likely to seek medical help early, and, if diagnosed with a disease, they are more likely to be non-adherent to treatment.” On top of all that, he says, men are more likely to take life-threatening risks and to die in car accidents, brawls or gun fights.
