Testosterone: it’s the hormone doctors say makes men feel like tough guys, but according to a new study it might make men more vulnerable than women to at least one outside threat. Researchers at Stanford University now say men with higher levels of testosterone produce lower numbers of antibodies in response to the flu vaccine and tend to suffer more when they have the flu. The study looked at 90 men and women. After each was given the flu shot their blood was tested for antibodies to the flu.
