Extract

John Gray’s famous book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, focuses on the differences between men and women.1 This book deals with relationships between men and women using a metaphor that Martians (men) and Venusians (women) met, fell in love, and developed loving relationships; on moving to Earth, they forgot they were from different planets. Subsequently, their relationships deteriorated. Maybe the sexes are more different than we think, and maybe our understanding of disease states will benefit from closer examinations of the variations of specific diseases between the sexes.
