It's True! Women are Equal, but Different Biologically
Women are equal, but we now know that they are different, especially when it comes to matters of biology. Women and men differ biologically when it comes to muscle fiber, blood flow, fat storage, and metabolism (to name a few) which in turn may influence the effectiveness of certain medications, dosages, or treatments.
A 2015 research study conducted by Northwestern neuroscientists found an inherent biological difference between males and females in the molecular regulation of synapses in the hippocampus.
