Men's Health Week: Helping the Men in Our Lives Stay Healthy

Keeping men healthy

A survey done by the Cleveland Clinic showed only 50% of men get regular physical exams, and more than 70% would rather do household chores than go to the doctor.

Why?

More than 46% reported being embarrassed while more than 30% were intimidated by potential diagnosis that might be made.

Why is this important? 

Men have a shorter life expectancy than women (6 years on average in the US) and are more likely to develop chronic illnesses at earlier ages than women. 

One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, 1 in 3 are obese, and more than 20% of men older than 20 years old have high blood pressure. 

As we gear up to celebrate the fathers, grandfathers and uncles in our lives this weekend—lets truly show our appreciation for them by encouraging them to make their annual physicals and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
