 Who Deals With Pain Better – Man or Woman?
A new study has revealed the difference in the way men and women deal with pain.

Research has revealed that while men focus their energies into fearing a painful procedure, women think of ways to cope with the pain.


Brain scans taken during their experience of excruciating pain has revealed that though men and women experienced similar kind of discomfort, men were more concerned with avoiding the pain, while women connected pain to negative emotions.

A detailed study is required to conclusively prove that women handle pain better than men.
