Top 10 men’s health issues

Men, strict health care and regular doctor’s visits go together like oil and water. It’s probably because of this stubbornness and unwillingness to make regular visits to our doctor or have preventative screenings, take symptoms seriously and live a healthier lifestyle, that we die an average seven years before women do.

Men, strict health care and regular doctor’s visits go together like oil and water. It’s probably because of this stubbornness and unwillingness to make regular visits to our doctor or have preventative screenings, take symptoms seriously and live a healthier lifestyle, that we die an average seven years before women do.

The main killers:

• Colon and rectal cancer – it’s one of the most commonly occurring internal cancers and the second-most common cause of cancer-related death, after lung cancer

• Heart disease – a man’s risk of heart disease begins to rise steeply after 45

• Prostate cancer – it is one of the leading killers of men globally

• Accidents – also called unintentional injuries; this is the number three cause of death among men

• Chronic lower respiratory diseases – a group of diseases that affect the lungs

• Stroke – managing your high blood pressure can lower your risk of a stroke

• Diabetes – most men are unaware of this until they develop vision loss, kidney disease or erectile dysfunction

• Suicide – men are almost four times more likely than women to successfully commit suicide

• Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease – these diseases usually occur after age 65 but are also on the rise among men in their thirties, forties and fifties

• Throat and lung cancer – cigarette smoking is the major cause of lung cancer.

Truth be told, guys, when it comes to our health issues, the stakes are too high for us to remain complacent.

Do yourself a favour and pop these on your health to-do list:

• Eliminate foods made from white flour from your diet

• Stay away from dangerous trans fats

• Incorporate weight training into your exercise routine

• Maintain your optimal weight

• Drink alcohol only in moderation

• Protect your prostate

• Masturbate to prevent cancer and boost immunity

• Maintain vigorous sexual activity

• Maintain close relationships.

And remember, guys, we really do need to start communicating our health problems to one another and our doctors, the same way that women do. Learn to share the details of your health as easily as you share rugby or soccer scores and dirty jokes down at the pub, and you could add years to your life.
