Eunuchs live longer

The BBC is running a story that apparently shows that eunuchs live longer, after a genealogical study in South Korea showed that eunuchs from 1556-1861 apparently lived up to 19 years longer there than on average.

The full story is at www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19699266

I'm not advocating we become eunuchs...
