Men’s Health

What You Don’t Know May Hurt You

Most men know by now that good lifestyle choices – such as exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, not smoking and drinking in moderation – make a big difference in staying healthy. Men may too often ignore these sensible recommendations, but it’s not because they’re not aware of them.

What many don’t realize is that environmental exposures also contribute to major diseases and health concerns that primarily affect men. EWG’s researchers scoured the scientific literature and uncovered troubling data that may come as a surprise. There has been significant research in recent decades showing that chronic conditions such as heart disease, prostate cancer, infertility may be linked to everyday exposures to chemicals in water, consumer products and food.

Additionally, many men don’t know that they’re at a higher risk than women of developing skin cancer and dying from its most fatal form, melanoma. Read EWG’s advice on some of the alarming trends regarding skin cancer, and why men should engage in proper sun safety.

There’s not much you can do about your genetics, but there are lots of ways to reduce exposures to potentially harmful chemicals and other environmental risk factors, so why not follow some of EWG’s tips and increase your chances of living the healthiest and longest life possible?

    The skin cancer is probably we are to lazy to put on sunscreen. I’m kind of guilty and I work outside all year. 😀
