Men and Women are really different

This article highlights a changing trend in medical science, the realization that men and women are physiologically different, respond to diseases differently, and get diseases at different rates. A quote from this doctor is good news;

"Women are different than men, not only psychologically (but) physiologically, and I think we need to understand those differences," says Dr. Catherine DeAngelis, editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

DeAngelis, who became the journal's first female editor in 1999, says she has made it a mission to publish only research in which data are broken down by sex unless it involves a disease that affects just men or women.

Now they just need to realize and come to terms on the biological differences of race.
