Doctors encouraging men to take control of health

Cleveland Clinic published a study in recent years that revealed men don’t like going to the doctor. Japanese scientists even have a name for work stress that can result in high rates of stroke and heart attack. Only half get the check-ups and preventative care they need while 20% said they weren’t even honest with their doctor because they were embarrassed or afraid to change their habits.

A recent study published by Harvard looks at the reasons that men don’t measure up well to our female counterparts. Four out of 10 men age 20 and older classify as obese and more than half of men 20 and older have hypertension — high blood pressure — which can lead to the leading cause of death for men across America, and that’s heart disease.

Women live on average five years longer than men, and the reasons vary from biology to bad choices to literally working themselves to death. Fifteen percent of all adult men are not in good health at all, and only about half of them get enough exercise, which would be the federally recommended amount of movement.

Source Sleep, exercise and a healthy diet — that’s the foundation of a happy life, and Men’s Health Week is a good time to evaluate your own habits and change them for the better.

So guys, it’s time to be honest. And more than 40% said they were told as children that men don’t complain.
