On the outside, the distinctive signs between men and women are visible. But what about on the inside? We already know that there is a difference in size between certain vital organs and certain bones. But what about the main human muscle: the heart? Some studies say that the male heart is different from the female heart. But what about it?

Most cardiological studies are conducted on male subjects: cardiac resistance, physical exercise, etc. While a man’s heart is shaped in the same way as a woman’s, the bodies, strengths, and resistance are quite different. Science has always mistakenly believed that male and female heart diseases are treated in the same way.

PROVEN DISTINCTIVE SIGNS

Anatomically speaking, the hearts of men and women are similar. Nevertheless, there are some differences. The first one concerns height and weight: women’s hearts are slightly smaller and lighter (250 g compared to 300 g for men).

Another difference was noticed in the arteries. These are thinner in female subjects. Similarly, a female heart will beat faster than a male heart: respectively 78-82 beats for women against 70-72 beats for men.
