In a study completed by the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, a doctor found that the difference in mortality rates differed markedly between genders. The study found that the life expectancy for men and women of similar ages were about the same, 5.9 and 5.8 in years for men and women respectively. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12195537
