Study reveals science behind why women say more than men

UNDATED (WHDH) -- Ladies - the next time the man in your life complains that you talk too much, silence him with science.

A new study from the University of Maryland found that women are naturally chattier because their brains contain 30-percent more of a protein, that stimulates language.

The study goes on to say that on average women say 20,000 words a day - 13,000 more than men do.

The study also provides support for why girls usually learn to speak at an earlier age than boys.
