It's not just patriarchy that is breaking our backs; we women are also at disadvantage as far as our health is concerned. Here are seven health conditions that affect women more than men.
Heart diseases: Here's putting end to all those "women are heartless jokes." Although more men are prone to heart attacks, women are more likely to die from them! 
Osteoporosis: Women, in general, have thinner bones than men do and are prone to decreased bone density. Apart from that, menopause and thyroid hormones also render our bones weaker and more prone to osteoporosis. 
Arthritis: Our bodies are designed for childbirth so the tendons of the lower body are less stable. That's why women are more prone to injuries than men. 
Gastrointestinal problems: Women are more susceptible to gastrointestinal disorders. Differences in brain structures and higher level of inhibitory neurotransmitters make women's gastrointestinal health more fragile. 
Alzheimer's disease: Nearly two thirds of people living with Alzheimer's are women. Genetic influences in women, hormonal activities, differences in brain pattern and lifestyle components make women more prone to Alzheimer's disease. 
Depression: More women are prone to depression than men. Women also experience specific forms of depression-related illnesses like PMS, dysphoric disorder, postpartum depession, postmenopausal depression and anxiety. 
STDs: According to CDC, women's unique anatomy increases risk for contracting STDs. The lining of the vagina is thinner and provides a moist environment for pathogens to thrive.
