Men’s Health month – non profit webpage

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.

Prove how healthy you are!

  • Eat right. Exercise daily. Visit the doctor regularly. Stay healthy.
  • Man up and schedule your MD annual visit.
  • Guys, eat right, exercise daily and visit the doctor regularly. Set a healthy example for your kids and family.
  • More exercise. Less junk food.
  • Load up on veggies and fruits. Eat healthy this June.
  • Women are 100% more likely than men to visit a doctor.
  • Make prevention a priority!
  • 1 in 2 men are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime compared to 1 in 3 women. Let’s change this statistic.

Yours in Wellness,

30 Days of Men’s Health -> 30 Years!

Hey Men – let’s use this National Men’s Health Month to make positive, lasting  changes to our workouts and wellness.  

For inclusiveness – hey ladies – please help us guys live well and sweat six days a week!

Let’s recall and focus on fist principles – like our waistlines.  

You can check on-line to see if your “guy” avoirduprois is outside healthy limits.  Dr. Weil and many other reputable sources can help you check that measurement and focus on its implications:

That stated, I’d be very concerned if my waistline was anywhere close to those subjective “healthy” limits.  I work hard to ensure that it’s not.

Let’s face the cold hard truth – leaner organisms of all species tend to live longer.

See this article and research MANY more to reinforce the lean longevity angle!

Diet, activity and of course your family genes are factors.  Yet please control those variable factors that you can.

 

Yours in healthy guy living,

Dave
