Top Men's Health Concerns 2023


Cancer

Cancer continues to be a leading cause of death for men, with lung and prostate cancers being particularly prevalent. But we're not simply limited to our genetics and we shouldn't sit back and wait for it to happen. Cancer prevention begins with awareness and is sustained by proactive measures.



Preventative Pathways

  • Regular Health Screenings: Early detection through regular check-ups can significantly improve treatment outcomes.

  • No Nicotine: Eliminating tobacco use is a critical step in reducing cancer risk. Nicotine is known to cause cancer, and for many of us it will.

  • Weight Management: Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise is vital. The easiest thing to do is watch your sugar intake and try to reduce spikes where you can.

  • Exercise: Regular physical activity is not just good for the body's overall functioning; it's also a key player in cancer prevention.



Cardiovascular Disease

Men are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease due to genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors.


Preventative Strategies

  • Healthy Weight: Keeping a watchful eye on weight is crucial for heart health.

  • Regular Physical Activity: Exercise is essential to maintain a robust cardiovascular system. To help, we made an entire DIY workout guide full of exercises.

  • Heart-Healthy Diet: Consuming foods that support heart health can significantly lower the risk of heart disease. We made a guide to what to eat and how much.

  • No Smoking: As with cancer, steering clear of tobacco can help prevent heart disease.

Mental Health

Mental health issues such as anxiety and depression affect a significant number of men, often going undiagnosed due to societal stigma and lack of awareness.


Preventative Measures

  • Relaxation Activities: Activities like meditation, yoga, or even simple breathing exercises can help manage stress.

  • Support Networks: Building and maintaining social connections can provide emotional support.

  • Professional Help: Seeking help from mental health professionals is a sign of strength, not weakness, and can be crucial in managing mental health conditions.
