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.
