Did you know about National Men’s Health Week?
In June, National Men’s Health Week always begins on the Monday before Father’s Day and ends on Father’s Day itself.
This year it is June 14-20.
What better way to celebrate dad than to encourage him to take care of his health!
The week is all about the need for healthy bodies, hard exercise, good diet, and regular visits to the doctor.
Men’s health is not only a concern for men, but it is also a concern for women who care about the health of their fathers, husbands, sons and brothers.
The health of men in America is steadily deteriorating, largely due to poor health education, lack of awareness and culturally induced behavior patterns.
This has caused a silent health crisis, whereby men face higher mortality rates than women for 9 of the 10 leading causes of death in addition to a shorter life span.
Additionally, men’s health is an issue for employers who lose productive employees and pay the costs of their medical care, as well as for society, which absorbs the enormous costs of premature death and disability.
