Since this is “Movember“. a full month dedicated to improving mens health, we’ll take a good look at these things.

I often talk about lack of regular exercise being a big problem overall, however,  women are more inclined to workout as a  general rule.

The guys I know who train regularly make up a small percentage of the population.

I salute them, they are leaders!

We’ll come back to this later, though, but first we’ll look at two big problems affecting men:

  1. not getting an annual physical exam
  2. smoking

How many guys do you know that are diligent in getting their annual physical exam?

Not many I am sure. Why do men avoid this simple process that could save their lives?

Their wives and children get regular check ups, so what is the big problem?

Even their dogs get regular check ups.

Many guys will be seeing doctors regularly when they are older, whether they want to or not, especially if they are avoiding them when they are young.

It’s time to wake up and take action, men!

The second problem area is smoking. This should be a no-brainer, but it isn’t.

Why do guys enjoy sucking burning weeds into their lungs?

Why did I when I was much younger?

I am so glad I quit decades ago!

“Smoking causes nearly 29 percent of all cancer deaths among Americans over the age of 35, according to a new analysis published in JAMA Internal Medicine. But that doesn’t tell the full story.”  The Huffington Post
