Notice in the article how they spin this as positive for women and negative for men, when they do not understand why or how this works. Then why bother to propose any judgement and not include all relevant facts?

Perhaps the left brain (logic) consumes more energy than the right brain (emotion)?

Do men's brains consume more energy to start with?

Why the assumption and narrative that the woman's condition is better and the man's is worse?

Women live longer, is what comes to mind to me. That may explain part of the brain age discrepancy.

Clicks, and money. That's all they care about. All reporting is biased, most people just don't complain when it's in agreement with their opinions or preconceived notions. I think if people would just accept this fact, they could read anything and take everything with a grain of salt.
