    Does the immune system function differently for males vs females?

    In my house the females (2) get sick easily and the males (3) never get sick. Is there a connection between this or just a coincidence?

    I have never heard that there is a difference between immune systems of males and females. But perhaps you should consider yourself lucky in small measure, because sick males are generally more difficult. smile

    Females(2x chromosomes) are biologically stronger than males(xy chromosomes).
