12 Facts That Prove Women Have Superpowers

Every woman is a Wonder Woman if you know enough about the female body. Well, not all ladies have superhuman strength or durability like Diana but they have some tricks up in their sleeve that will astonish even science nerds.

Bright Side has compiled some fascinating facts about the female body that are going to make you believe every woman is a superhero in a sense.

1. Women have more taste buds than men.

Women have a better sense of taste. That is due to the fact they on average have more taste areas (fungiform papillae) and taste buds on their tongues than men.

2. Girls have better cardiovascular health.

Women experience less heart disease than men. This is not because their lives are sunshine. It’s due to the fact that the hormones of premenopausal women have protective functions on the heart.

3. Women look younger on average than men.

On average women look younger than men. This is due to male skin being 25% thicker and prone to showing facial lines and age spots.

4. On average women live longer than men.

Girls stick around for longer on that Earth — women live about five years longer than men. The science folks believe this is due to the fact that women engage in healthier behaviors than men over their lifetime.

Men may be stronger than women but girls’ muscles have some superpowers too — they stay strong longer and recover faster, allowing women to have much superior endurance.

6. Women’s brains are wired differently. That’s why they are good at multitasking.

Male brains are wired front to back, with few connections bridging the two hemispheres. However, In females, the neuro pathways cross between left and right. Scientists believe this is a possible explanation for why women are good at multitasking.
