Do you know the top men's health threats? The list includes heart disease, cancer and unintentional injury. Thankfully, most men's health threats are largely preventable. Make healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet and including physical activity in your daily routine.
It's also important to manage risky behavior, such as drinking too much and engaging in casual sex. Of course, commonsense precautions — such as using safety ladders and wearing a seat belt — count, too.
As you get older, your men's health concerns are likely to change. Could a beer gut lead to health problems? Is male menopause a myth or a true men's health issue? Could testosterone therapy help you feel young again? Get answers to these and other men's health questions.
