According to the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC), in 2001 a study was released stating that men were 100% less likely to go to the doctors for care than women. In another study, women aged 15 to 44 were going to the doctors at a rate of 56% higher than men from the same age group.
Something needs to be done in order to give men that extra push they need to go see their doctors regularly. Men’s Health Awareness month will offer just that. Health groups will provide men with tips, advice and necessary health information they need to maintain a healthy and balanced life.
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) has organized the Men’s Health Network to get men thinking about their health every June.
To raise money and awareness for prostate cancer, men will sport a mustache for the entire month of November - or more appropriately November. Since 2003, November has raised over $100 million.
Other organizations that promote men’s health include The American Urology Association Foundation and the Larry King Cardiac Foundation.
By promoting men’s health, organizations are hoping that men will become more aware about their current lifestyle and make some changes to ensure a happy, healthy, longer life.
