SURVEY: 'MAN FLU' EXISTS
Men are said to handle being sick worse than women do, and a recent study even confirmed men call in sick and go to the doctor with common colds more frequently than women do.
Now a poll of 2,000 adults from Britain reveals eight percent of men say they've visited the doctor for a runny nose, and 55 percent of women say their significant other regularly "exaggerates" cold symptoms. Over a third of those polled said illness caused arguments in their relationship, and just over 50 percent of women said they show signs of sympathy when their partner is sick (66 percent of men claimed the same).
Another interesting find: 63 percent of men claim they 'battle through' the flu, but experts say it's more likely they simply have a cold and believe they have the flu as it's much more difficult to power through flu symptoms.
