You’re not invincible
If you take better care of your car or favorite gadget than your body, you aren’t alone. A lot of us, have unhealthy work and personal lifestyles that is a constant assault on our health and well-being. Lack of health awareness, due to weak health education, is common for men.
Health Insurance has never been more expensive and there is no consensus in our government on the best way to make health insurance more affordable. When men are worried about the cost of receiving medical attention we tend not to have check ups. It’s important to visit your medical provider to learn how you can reduce your risk of common conditions facing men, such as cancer, depression, heart disease, and respiratory diseases.
