INTERNET RESOURCES FOR MEN

Men interested in health issues can benefit from websites that are geared specifically for their interests and concerns. Topics for everything from disease information to preventative health to fitness and nutrition are available with the easy-to-access websites listed below.

While the life-expectancy gap between men and women has decreased, it's no secret that men still need to pay more attention to their bodies. Several things work against men. They tend to smoke and drink more than women. They don't seek medical help as often as women. Some men define themselves by their work, which can add to stress. Many of the major health risks that men face, like colon cancer or heart disease, can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. It's important for men to get annual checkups and screenings and to communicate openly and honestly with their doctors.
