 Women Hit the Hardest By Bad News: study

A new study says that bad news affects women more.

Researchers who showed men and women stories taken from newspapers found reports of accidents and murders took a greater toll on the female psyche, Daily Mail reported Thursday.

This, they said, could be because women are more empathetic and have evolved to look out for and think about situations that threaten them and their children.

The Canadian researchers gave 56 men and women a selection of stories from Montreal's newspapers. Some were judged to be emotionally neutral, such as a report about a film premiere or the opening of a new bridge. Others were more harrowing.
