June is Men’s Health Month and Mocha Man Style is committed to sharing information to help men live healthy, productive lives.
On average, men die five years younger than women and die at higher rates from nine of the top 10 causes of death. Specifically, men are at higher risk for:
- Suicide (Depression)
- Heart Disease
- Lung Disease
- Unintentional Injuries (accidents)
I recently spoke with Freddy Cruz host of Around H-Town on KRBE 104.1 FM about men’s health and my personal experience with stroke. You can listen to the podcast below.
I encourage all men to schedule an annual exam with your primary care physician to monitor your health. Early detection of problems can help you to develop a treatment plan to keep you healthy and extend your life.
In addition, you can take the following steps to maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Eat healthy foods
- Stay active and exercise regularly
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Take a daily vitamin supplement
- Stay connected to family and friends
- Manage and reduce stress
