    Smoking is the main reason why on average men die sooner than women across Europe, according to research.


    World Health Organization figures on death rates reveal tobacco-related illness accounts for up to 60% of the gender health gap in most countries.
    In the UK, women live an average of four years longer than men, although in recent years the gap has been closing.


    Second to smoking, alcohol accounts for about 20% of the disparity, the journal Tobacco Control reports.
    Some experts have claimed the difference is down to simple biology or the fact that women seek medical help more readily than men.
    But the latest findings suggest smoking is the main culprit.
    Across 30 European countries, which included the UK, deaths from all causes were higher for men than for women

    The fact that the gender gap varies between countries shows it is social causes, and largely smoking-related”
