How did America become a deadlier place for men?

Article here. Excerpt:

'Much as postmodern academics and progressive political activists may deny it, there are natural differences between the sexes, and the mere fact that women live longer is not so surprising.

For one thing, men are disproportionately employed in the nation’s most hazardous jobs, including as loggers, roofers, construction workers, aircraft pilots and steel workers.

And if a male propensity for risk-taking makes men more successful in certain executive and entrepreneurial roles, it also leads to more men and boys dying of misadventure and accident.

But the gap in longevity has widened by a full year since 2010, when it was at a historic minimum of 4.8 years.

Human nature hasn’t changed in that time — something has changed in America to make it a deadlier place for men.'
