-Humans technically start life as a blank slate, and for the first 5 to 6 weeks, only the X chromosome is present in a fetus. After the 5- to 6-week period, if the fetus is to be male, the Y chromosome finally appears in a process called sexual differentiation.
-If a man’s father is bald, then his chances of also losing his hair increase by 60%. The activity of male hormones also affects hair follicles in such a way that the body gradually loses its ability to produce new hair.
-A man’s skin loses its concentration of collagen much more slowly as he ages, meaning that it’s much more resistant to wrinkling and sagging.
-Men’s skin is thicker on the stratum corneum, which is the outermost layer of the epidermis. It provides a strong barrier between the environment and the living cells underneath.
-Men and women are built from a common pattern, and that’s the reason why men have nipples. In theory, men could lactate because male breasts have milk ducts and some mammary tissue.
-The Adam’s apple expands to account for the growth of the larynx. As the larynx grows, the man’s voice becomes deeper and lower.
-Men can discern far fewer shades of color than women can. Color perception is determined by retinal cone cells. Their information is contained in the X chromosome, and, because women have 2 X chromosomes, the number of cone cells they possess is, naturally, twice as high as that of men.
