“We have different symptoms that we need to know” 

In her recent book Gendermedizin Warum Frauen eine andere Medizin brauchen Stefanie Schmid-Altringer talks about main differences between male and female health as well as their consequences. The podcast offers an insight into the topic.

Unseen impacts of the Corona virus 

In the podcast Schmid-Altringer also analyzes current trends. Although men are more often infected than women, it’s women who are more likely to catch the virus. This is because “75 percent of front workers are women”. They are more often exposed to stress and therefore their immune system is more challenged.
