If you were born a man, then you are going to have to live with the fact that you are likely not as healthy as most women your age. Even at early ages, men tend to be less healthy than women. Much of this boils down to how seriously men take their health compared to women. For most men, health is often the last thing on their mind. Whatever the reason, there is a lot that men can do to stay on top of certain men’s health concerns and remain healthier longer.
Death By Age 65 or Younger
Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death worldwide. For most men, this translates to a vast number of the male population never reaching their 65th birthday. There are a number of reasons for why this occurs. In a lot of cases, men simply do not get enough exercise. Even if you are in your late 50s, you still need to be getting a decent amount of exercise each day.
Lung Cancer on the Decline
Congratulations men; it is starting to show that men are not dying of lung cancer as much as in the past. Yet lung cancer is still the leading type of cancer among men. So, it is possible for men to improve these men’s health statistics even more so than in the past. It really comes down to giving up the cigarettes. As more men do this, the mortality rate associated with lung cancer will continue to drop dramatically.
Diabetes and Obesity
The modern obesity and diabetes epidemic could single-handedly wipe out the healthcare system as we know it. As more people become overweight and have issues with diabetes, the cost associated with this problem becomes astronomical. This is just another men’s health issue to consider.
