Flu season is in full swing in both Canada and the United States, with hundreds of thousands of people expected to get sick this winter. And every cold and flu season brings the same debate: Do men seem to experience stronger symptoms of the flu compared to women? Or are women more resilient and able to deal with their symptoms more easily?
The “man flu” has been a running joke for some time, but a new study in the British Journal of Medicine concludes that there’s some evidence that it exists. This article from CBC News explains the study, which used mice that were infected with the same strains of a virus. The female mice exhibited a stronger immune response to the virus, while the male mice seemed to experience symptoms more severely.
Real or not, Nova Scotia Organics offers a variety of organic vitamins and supplements to strengthen the immune systems of both men and women.
