Other statistics show that men are 3 times more likely to die of coronary heart disease than women, twice as likely to get skin cancer and 3 times more likely to commit suicide, and many other health statistics going against them.
Perhaps a reason why is that men do not want to be seen as "weak" or suggesting that there may be something wrong with their health! I'm sure the women, families, employers & friends around such men would actually prefer them to be alive and healthy instead of suffering health conditions because of embarrassment or any other reason (ie, excuse!).
Another reason may be that more men are working and can't get the time off to see a practitioner. I am aware that most people work business hours, and as a result I am available for evening and weekend consultations to fit in with your busy lifestyles!
Men's diets are known to not be as good as for women in general! As a result, men's health can be affected. However, good food choices can still be made in a working or away-from-home environment - if men have the right information as to what their food choices are really doing to their health, and what they can do about it.
So ladies, please insist that the men in your life seek professional health advice when needed, or even for prevention, as improving their diets, lifestyle, sleep and health can be achieved a lot quicker if looked at earlier! Men, just do it!
