Canadian Men’s Health Month runs throughout the month of June. The goal is to inspire Canadian men to live healthier lives by prioritizing their health and wellness. Research suggests that men tend to put less of a focus on their health and wellbeing than women. They see the doctor less frequently and are less engaged in preventative health behaviours.
What puts a man’s health at risk as he gets older? The top risk factors are common and often preventable. Simple lifestyle changes can reduce a man’s risk for many common health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, etc. By taking a more active role in your health and wellbeing, you can enjoy the things you love well into your later years.
Whether it be changes to your diet, incorporating more regular exercise into your daily routine, reducing alcohol intake, or quitting smoking, these modifications can significantly reduce risk factors for chronic illness.
