I am well aware that I talk way more than my husband but I had no idea I said 20,000 words a day . . . which is almost TRIPLE the number guys say, at about 7,000.  Women are known to be more outgoing and overall more chatty than men but scientists have figured out why.  According to Science World Report Researchers at the University of Maryland identified a protein in the brain that helps us produce speech.  And women have 30% more of it than men. So ladies it is not your fault you talk a lot.
