"Drugs act in the same way in both women and men"

FALSE
Healthcare researches have shown gradually that it is not true. On the one hand, each man acting alone to some drugs and on the other hand there are factors that determine the differentiation of these reactions depending on gender. It looks like aspirin for example, can prevent heart attacks in some extent in men but in women this effect is reduced. Liposoluble drugs such as narcotics should be dosed differently in women as they have on average a higher fat mass. How drugs act may be influenced by the concentration of enzymes in the body. However, this differentiation is not only by gender but by ethnicity. Meanwhile it was found, for example, there are drugs that act favorably to the African but not in Europe - and vice versa.
