Did you know that the average man typically pays less attention to his health than the average woman? In the United States, men die on average five years earlier than women. This statistic is fairly consistent in most other countries throughout the world. When compared to women, men are more likely to:
- Drink alcohol and use tobacco
- Make risky choices
- Not see a doctor for regular preventative checkups
Cardiovascular disease, cancer, and unintentional injury are the leading causes of death among American men. However, they also can have unique issues such as prostate cancer and hormone imbalances. Many of these major health risks that men face can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle: regular exercise, a healthy diet, not smoking, stress reduction, and alcohol consumption in the moderate range if at all. Regular checkups and screening tests can detect disease early, when it is easiest to treat.
