"The world’s population has experienced a rapid improvement in mortality in the
second half of this century. Life expectancy has increased dramatically, particularly in the past thirty years. This rapid improvement in the developed world was
accompanied by an increase in the gap between male and female survival.
This widening sex difference is due mainly to the higher pace of improvement for females rather than to a decrease in life expectancy for males. This increased disparity is obvious in both France and Denmark, where male mortality is twice as high as that of females for some age groups.
The first at young ages (20–35), which is the result of increased death
rates from accidents, violence, and the second in late adulthood and
at the beginning of old age, where the cardiovascular and cancer rates are much higher for males than females.
The gaps between the two sexes for these major causes of death have been increasing in most of the developed countries since World War II."

If we want to talk about pre-WW II gender mortality that'd be fine too.
Thank you for your reply Ezi. Good luck out there.
John Morse, reread that last line in the context of my post. It wasn't an invitation for advice whether I need to wipe my nose, how I feel about wiping noses, my philosophy of nasal care, whether an ENT is an admirable profession, etc... Context. Context, and context.
It certainly wasn't an invitation for many like for example Lomar Fopah to put words in my mouth and then ignore my replies repeatedly.
Or are the inmates running the asylum?
Lomar Fopah again you are putting words in my mouth. Again you disregarded my entire reply.
