Women Suffer More Anxiety.

Upon reviewing the data on anxiety disorders, psychologist Isaac Marks found that 90% of those suffering from animal phobias, 75% of agoraphobics and 60% of those suffering from social phobias were women.  In Holland a team found that women are at more than twice the risk of having a diagnosed anxiey disorder.  Dr Susan Nolen-Hoeksema found from reviewing the literature on anxiety that women are more likely to suffer from all of the anxiety disorders with the exception of obsessive complulsive disorders.
