I might have man flu 😷 but it's nothing that a bit of fresh air, sunshine, and green space can't fix. Ok...that's not entirely true. Man flu is a VERY serious condition. It hits hard and stays around. Fellas, am I right or am I right?
On a serious note there is actually some research indicating that man flu is real! Some viruses have evolved to be more severe in men than women. Why? Because the virus thinks that it can spread further if passed from mother to child via breastfeeding or birth, therefore it actually has less severe symptoms in the host (women). Another hypothesis is that estrogen is actually protective against influenza. Basically, by preserving the female population, the virus is able to continually adapt, survive, and get transmitted. It's no joke ladies. Be nice to your fluey men! #Fyoumanflu #firstfluinayear #notcomplaining
