Today's Random Fact:

While men tend to die earlier than women of natural causes, they also account for 94 percent of all on-the-job fatalities, even though they barely represent 50 percent of the U.S. workforce.

Men are also four times more likely than women to be murdered, and 10 times more likely to commit murder.

Bonus Fact:

Worldwide, there are approximately 107 baby boys born for every 100 baby girls. Scientists believe the elevated birth rate in favor of boys may be linked to the higher mortality rates of boys in infancy and childhood.

The brains of adult men are about 10 percent larger in total size than the brains of women. Because men generally have a larger stature and more muscle mass than women, their brains require more neurons to control the body.
