World full of 'bad news' piles stress on for women

THE advent of the 24-hour news cycle, internet and smart phones, has led to women becoming more stressed by "bad news", a study revealed last Thursday.

The study took 30 men and 30 women, exposing them to bad news for 10 minutes, or neutral news for 10 minutes.

A stress test after the exposure showed women were, on balance, more likely to be experiencing higher stress levels than men.

Other experts have questioned the research, saying the jury was still out on conclusive result on how bad news affects both genders.

The study was published in scientific journal PlosOne.
