Do you watch or read news? How often? According to Health Day News women are affected more by bad news than men. "Bad news in the media increases women's sensitivity to stressful situations but does not affect men, a new study finds.University of Montreal researchers asked 60 people to read actual news stories. The articles were either neutral stories about events such as the opening of a new park or the premiere of a film, or negative stories about events such as accidents and murders." More 

Do you believe this? Why?

youre 100 % right  

thats because we care and at times are more emotional about things and we also give a damn to make a difference and thats why you are absolutely right.
