While the cause for this discrepancy isn’t yet identified, suggested theories range from variations in health care usage and lifestyle aspects to life expectancy and other biological differences.

Thanks Cassidywoods,

I hadn't heard that before and it's certainly worth more investigations to find out why this is, I think. There's so much more we need to learn! Best wishes.
