We men like to be healthy. Of course, actually being healthy is a hell of a lot harder than just liking the idea. We’ve got beer to drink, after all, and junk food to eat, and video games to play and gyms to not go to because we’re too busy watching the game. We’ve got parties and late nights and energy drinks and sometimes cigarettes because sometimes we’re edgy like that. As a matter of fact, the new Fall 2011 Guyde Report has confirmed just how much we love our unhealthy vices.
Can you blame us? But excuses aside, staying healthy is a serious issue. Unfortunately, how healthy we are isn’t always entirely up to us. Take cancer, for instance, That punkass can strike anyone at any time. And you know how prevalent cancer is among men? Super prevalent. One in two men will develop some form of cancer in their lives, the most common being testicular and prostate cancer.
Thankfully, these cancers are curable if diagnosed early through doctor visits plus regular ball checks. And yet, 40 percent of guys check once a year or less, while 25 percent say fear of prostate exams is why they avoid the doctor. Reversing these numbers could save your life, and you’re not alone. Every Movember, men around the world grow moustaches to raise awareness and money for men’s health issues like prostate and testicular cancer. Join Made Man’s Mo-Bro team and help spread the word. And learn more about men’s health risks with the Guyde video below. Because knowledge is health, and a cancer-free nether region.
