By Vanessa Vidal on February 20, 2014 | Permalink

Men and women are different. It seems obvious, but apparently it’s not obvious when it comes to medical research, diagnostics and treatment. Aside from the visible anatomical differences, women and men have the same organs—livers, lungs, hearts, etc. For the most part, men and women have been seen by the…
