In this article we will look at one interesting theory of the cause.

deep cause of the disease, it is easier to deal with it.

To окончательно убедиться в правдивости этой теории приведем
one more fact. Everyone knows that men and women do not differ

foot and shin. In men, on the contrary, in the same 80% of cases
the left half of the buttocks and the left leg suffer.
Everyone knows that the right hemisphere is “responsible” for the left
part of the body, and the left – for the right. It is also known that in men and
women revealed differences in the prefrontal cortex (control over
decision-making) and in the frontal lobe of the brain. Differences in

memorize them. The almond-shaped body of the male body is associated with
right hemisphere, and the female – with the left.
Researcher Larry Cahill, observing the work of the brain in
acute stress in men and women (watching horror movies),
noticed that in men with stress the left hemisphere was able to
rest, and the reaction is most pronounced by the amygdala in the right
hemisphere. In women, the left amygdala is activated, and the right
