Men bite more than women

Recall the notorious 1997 Tyson-Holyfield boxing match? After examing 92 patients referred to the plastic surgery unit of St. James's Hospital in Dublin for human bites, a study (published in the Emergency Medical Journal ) found that man 12 times as likely as a woman to be bitten by his fellow man. 86% of the biting were related to alcohol consumption, and 70% of biting incidents happened on a weekend or public holiday.
