Ep 119- The Odd Reason Girls get more Autoimmune Diseases

Females get many more autoimmune diseases than men, and no one seems to understand why. I think I know why this is, and believe me, the reason is incredibly strange. If there wasn't scientific data to back it up, I'd never believe it.

Have you ever noticed how girls often seem to develop strange, unexplained illnesses in their teenage years, sometimes a bit later in their twenties? Do you know any girls like this – they moved through elementary and middle school just fine – perfect health – but once they got to high school or college, they suddenly developed gut issues like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, possibly a thyroid condition like Hashimoto’s? Maybe Rheumatoid arthritis? Have you experienced this yourself?
