Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Did you know there’s a biological reason why women talk more than men?
A new study shows women are actually programmed to speak thousands more words per day.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have found that women speak, on average, 20,000 words per day. For men, it’s just 7,000.
Why is that? Women have more of a special protein called Fox-P-2, than men. It’s essential for speech.
So, scientifically speaking, women are the more talkative sex.
