Men and Women Need to Be Studied Independently

We know that men and women are very different, but this becomes extremely clear when we look at diseases or the differences in the way certain drugs work in men and women.  This is why it's so important that men and women continue to be studied independently.  In the past, men were almost exclusively studied and women were treated based on the information acquired from studying men.  But it did not take long to realize that problems like heart attack had very different symptoms in men and women and also treatments were not cookie-cutter.  As funds were reduced to conduct important studies, it is important to study both sexes and gather important independent information.
