Men’s Health

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, men can make a few small changes that could have a tremendous impact on their health.

  • Eat Healthy. Balancing your diet with fruits and vegetables could help you lower the risk of conditions such as heart disease.
  • Maintain a weight that is healthy. Waist measurement can help you determine whether or not you are at risk for high blood pressure and stroke.
  • Exercise. Over 50% of both men and women do not spend enough time being active. Changing your daily routine to include at least 30 minutes a day of exercise could be beneficial.
  • Get routine exams. Men are at risk for cancers of the skin, prostate, and colon. Making an appointment with your doctor could help you identify the warning signs of these cancers early on and prevent them.
  • Get vaccinations.
  • Lower your stress. Are you too focused on things that stress you out? Try to change the way you approach these things in your life or eliminate them.

For fun you can test your knowledge about men’s health.
