I will admit that most men are physically stronger than women. But when it comes to who can deal better with the flu, my money's on women.

According to a new survey from Express women say men are WAY worse at handling the flu . . . and men don't completely disagree.

In the survey, only 41% of men say they handle the flu the same way as women.  Only 16% of women say men handle the flu the same way they do.

The survey also found about one in three people go out of their way to try to avoid getting sick in the winter.  That includes avoiding sick coworkers, switching seats on buses or planes, and avoiding crowds.
