Men's Health

There is an ongoing, increasing and predominantly silent crisis in the health and wellbeing of American males. Due to a lack of awareness, poor health education and a lack of male specific health programs, men’s health and well-being are deteriorating steadily. It is best illustrated by the life-expectancy gap. In 1920, the expectancy difference in men and women was one year, but by 1990 that had increased to over five years with men having a higher death rate from each of the leading causes of death. Statistics show that men do not see a doctor for a physical exam nearly as often as women, nor are they likely to receive health screenings or men’s blood tests to prevent the onset of more serious conditions including prostate ( PSA ) cancer.

Compared to women, men…

have higher death rates for all 15 leading causes of death (except Alzheimer’s) and die more than five years younger

represent 50% of the work force, yet account for 94% of all on-the-job fatalities
know less about health and take less responsibility for it
are less likely to see themselves as ill or susceptible to disease or injury
eat less fiber and more fatty, salty foods
smoke more and have more dangerous smoking habits
have higher rates of high blood pressure
drive recklessly and illegally and use safety belts less often
more males than females use, abuse, and are dependent upon substances

COLORECTAL HEALTH: A flexible

scope examines the rectum, sigmoid

and descending colon for

cancer at its earliest and treatable

stages. It also detects polyps, which

are benign growths that can progress

to cancer if not found early.

Every 3 to 4 years

 

 

CHEST X-RAY: Should be considered

in smokers over the age of

45. The usefulness of this test on a

yearly basis is debatable due to

poor cure rates of lung cancer.
