A New Study Proves That Women Handle Pain Better Than Men

You know who’s the most likely to cry like a little girl?  Someone who didn’t grow up as a little girl.

 According to a new study out of Queen Mary University in London, it’s official:  WOMEN handle pain better than men.

The study took brain scans to try to understand how men and women approach the idea of pain.

They found women spend less time focusing on FEAR and more time preparing and planning how they’ll handle and overcome the pain.

Meanwhile men focus almost exclusively on the fear of the pain and don’t prep themselves to handle it.

Because of that difference, women handle the pain in a more rational way.

Dr. Steven Coen led the study.  He says, quote, “We’re not saying men and women feel pain differently, but the way the brain interprets the pain may differ.”
