10 Facts That Show How Amazing the Female Body Is

One of the most fascinating features of the female body is childbearing. But the fact that women can grow another human being inside of them is not the only thing that makes them so amazing. If you take a closer look at the female organism, you can find plenty of other interesting facts that women themselves may not even know about.

smartzune.com  put together 10 points that prove the female body is full of surprises both weird and wonderful.

10. Women do distinguish colors better than men

The results showed that women were more adept at distinguishing between subtle gradations than were men. This sensitivity was most evident in the middle of the color spectrum. With hues that were mainly yellow or green, women were able to distinguish tiny differences between colors that looked identical to men.

Abramov asked men and women to break down the hue of a color and to assign a percentage to the categories red, yellow, green, and blue. The results showed that women were more adept at distinguishing between subtle gradations than were men. This sensitivity was most evident in the middle of the color spectrum. With hues that were mainly yellow or green, women were able to distinguish tiny differences between colors that looked identical to men. In fact, Abramov found that slightly longer wavelengths of light were required for men to see the same hues as women – hues identified as orange by women were seen as more yellow by men

Women see more shades than men as color perception is connected with the X-chromosome. Men have one X-chromosome while women have 2.

Abramov thinks that testosterone might be to blame for this difference. Men have more testosterone receptors than women, particularly in the visual regions of the brain, that might be causing the perceptual differences. Still the exact biological mechanism has yet to be discovered. And men and women aren’t the only categories of people who see color differently from each other. So do older people, compared to younger people. And people who work with color—think of artists and designers—have a significantly more enhanced color vocabulary. So the difference between men and women might not be biological, but cultural.
