In the battle of the sexes, here are a few important wins for women.

They almost always finish chewing food sooner than men, says author David Bodanis. That's because women have better control over their tongue muscles.

Bodanis also says women are superior in other subtleties of sight, sound and taste.

They generally have better peripheral vision than men because they have more off-centre receptors in their retinas, says Bodanis in his book, The Secret Family. Men, because of a different concentration of the same receptors, require a more face-on view to see things, as well.

That same physiological difference allows women to see better in low light than men. They can also hear high-frequency sounds better, and they usually can detect diluted tastes better. – (HealthScout)
