Alarming statistics show that men’s health is at great risk. On average, men die almost 6 years younger than women and suffer higher mortality rates for the top causes of death. The lives of hundreds of thousands of men will continue to be threatened unless immediate action is taken to combat this growing crisis.
Research shows that:
- men do not see physicians for a physical exam nearly as often as women
- men are dying on the top causes of death at higher rates than women
- men are more likely to be uninsured than woman
- approximately 30,000 men in the U.S. die each year from prostate cancer
