Science confirms: Man Flu Exists!

December 12, 2017

Gentlemen, REJOICE!  Man Flu is an actual thing... and what's more, the cure is to STAY IN BED!

According to Metro, A Canadian study was carried out to determine whether men really do experience worse symptoms than women or whether it is just a myth.

Dr Kyle Sue, a clinical assistant professor at Memorial University of Newfoundland, suggested men may not be exaggerating symptoms but have weaker immune responses to viral respiratory viruses.

Dr Sue argued the concept of man flu, as commonly defined, is potentially unjust and further research is needed.

"Men may not be exaggerating symptoms but have weaker immune responses to viral respiratory viruses, leading to greater morbidity and mortality than seen in women" he writes.

He said there may actually be an evolutionary benefit to a less robust immune system, as it has allowed men to invest their energy in other biological processes, ‘such as growth, secondary sex characteristics, and reproduction’.

Dr Sue added: ‘Lying on the couch, not getting out of bed, or receiving assistance with activities of daily living could also be evolutionary behaviours that protect against predators.

So lads, next time the other half is digging you out about feeling sick, get this page up and PROVE that Man Flu is very, very real.  Science has proved it!
