    Other significant impacts of sex Hormones control the timing and degree of change in the body. They are one of your inherited characteristics. There is now evidence to show that some of the genes that you inherit may carry your predisposition to certain diseases. Sex also has a significant impact on your share of resources in developing and industrialised countries and this in turn can affect development. This is discussed in more detail under environmental influences. Ethnicity [1] may cause variations in body size and body shape and this may influence timing of maturation. For example: smaller and finer body sizes generally experience late maturation. Research is showing that for some cancers there is a genetic link in many reported cases

    women generally live longer than men because of both biological and behavioral advantages - on average by six to eight years.[4] However, in certain regions around the world, such as in South Asia, China and Sub-Saharan Africa, these advantages are overshadowed by gender-based discrimination.[4] The discrimination stems from the fact that in many developing nations women and girls are generally perceived to be socially inferior. The patriarchal social structures of many of these places perpetuate the marginalization and oppression of women in the form of cultural norms and legal codes. As a result of this unequal social order, women are usually relegated into positions where they are not only more vulnerable to suffering from health problems, but also less able to have access and control over healthcare resources than men. For example, women living in areas with a patriarchal system are often less likely to receive tertiary education or to be employed in the paid labor market due to gender discrimination.[4] As a result, female life expectancy at birth and nutritional well-being, and immunity against communicable and non-communicable diseases, are often lower than those of men.
