Longer live the Queen, or why women live longer than men.

This article explores why women live longer than men, and not just in humans in what appears to be a beyond-lifestyle trend in longevity.

Living longer is good, evolutionarily, longer living individuals have better repairing and maintaining mechanisms.

Evolution may also have played a role, as the better the female body, the more successful her attempts at reproduction.  In other words, women have less disposable bodies than men, whose mating success does not depend so much on longevity.

As for men, it was found that castration was an indicator for longevity, but I doubt that that would be standard therapeutic practice.
