Is a female human's blood thinner than a man's?

NO! There are differences in the red blood cell counts (RBC) between athletes and non athletes, people living at high elevations vs. lower elevations, but not between healthy individuals based upon sex.

The average body temperature of humans is about 37 degrees Celsius. Individual temperatures may vary slightly.
