The missing link explaining why men and women get different diseases

This video reveals the mystery behind why men and women seem to suffer from and perish from different diseases based off basic brain imbalances.

Men seems to not get as many chronic diseases as women. In fact, if men have a problem with their health, they usually can perish quite quickly, either from violence, stupidity (think the show Jackass), from accidents (not paying attention), and from heart attacks. All these things point to hyperactive left-brain activity. Grossly simplified, the left brain can be understood as action-based, not thinking-based. What is violence? Action without thinking. What is stupidity? Action without thinking. Who gets more ADD/ADHD, boys or girls? Predominantly boys. They just act without thinking. Why do men potentially get more heart attacks? The left brain connects to the atrioventricular node of the heart, which controls the hearts rhythm, not its temp. A hyperactive left brain over-excites the atrioventricular node, leading to a potential fatal arrhythmia.

Women get more of the chronic diseases compared to men. Between men and women, who seems to get more chronic diseases like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome, adrenal fatigue, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, diabetes, cancers, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, chronic pain, foggy brain, insomnia, depression, chronic anxiety, bloating, and tachycardia.

Women are generally more right-brained then men. The right brain (through the insular cortex) has more connections to the sympathetic nervous system, known as the flight-or-fight response of the body. Chronic activity of the right brain leads to hyper activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which leads to a chronic break down of the body. The right brain also controls the sinoatrial node of the heart, which controls the tempo, which explains why women are more prone to tachycardia (fast heart beat) than fatal arrhythmia.
