The research, published in Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, examined adults and elderly subjects and discovered that those who shopped during the day were 27% less likely to die during the duration of the study than those who went to stores a few times or just once a week. via
It’s all in the genes, according to Daniel Kruger, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Michigan. Kruger argues that it’s natural for women to love to shop and men to hate it because of our evolutionary past.Men were the hunters in our ancestral cultures, so when they find a satisfactory specimen, whether it’s an elk or a pair of shoes, they want to shoot it and get out before it gets away.Women, by contrast, were the primary gatherers in early hunter-gatherer cultures, so they feel a need to check every berry on the bush to make sure they’re getting the best deal.
