Women across the world live longer than men on average, but where do women outlive men the longest? Believe it or not, it’s Russia, where women sometimes outlive their male counterparts for up to a decade. (Maybe it’s the vodka?) In parts of Africa and India, life expectancies seem to be much more even with a difference of only three or fewer years.
That said, recent research has shown that this gap may be closing, and by the year 2032, men are expected to live as long as women, with both sexes living an average of 87.5 years. The reasoning? There are many factors, but a fall in tobacco and alcohol consumption has greatly benefitted men.
