The ten year difference in the life expectancy beween men and women in Sri lanka may not be completely explained away by violence alone. The collateral damage caused to non combatant civilians by civil conflicts which has plagued this nation does not discriminate by sex ! Probably the new life style diseases which men are prone to diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer , liver diseases also play a role . Diet, sedentary life, alchohol and cigarette smoking are the causes .
