Dr. Legato observes the most important difference she's noticed from studying men is their vulnerability, from the moment they're conceived until the time they die. At all ages, men are more likely to die than women. Dr. Legato believes it's time to consider whether or not this isn't the first, and most serious, health issue of our time. "The vulnerability of men."
