Diseases like prostrate cancer and heart failure are some of the diseases that are common amongst men. These diseases have proven to haunt men in the future. Prevention is naturally better than cure so proper health care is always necessary for men.
Why do women live longer than men?
It is said that women live longer than men. Women are known to have a delay in terms of cardiovascular diseases like stroke and heart attack. Most doctors blame this on hormones and menstruation. Psychologists have their own explanation to the argument that women live longer than men do. They say this happens because men tend to be less expressive with their feelings while women are very sensitive.
Men tend to bottle up their feelings and this is led to higher suicide rates in the male population. Women are also known to watch their diet, most women eat healthy, not to be biased, but they eat a lot of vegetables and stay away from cholesterol. Most men are known to not care about what they ingest, ranging from alcohol to food. Men love red meat, steaks and burgers, all these which are naturally associated to high cholesterol that eventually leads to complications in the heart.
Amongst all other reasons, women are known to handle stress more effectively compared to men.

Fashion, Grooming, and Hygiene Practices

Nothing too flashy and nothing that attracts a lot of attention. Latest fashion trends have shown that men are actually pretty sophisticated in the field of fashion. The contemporary man is seen to wear more colors and to have more diverse styles in their fashion. For most casual events, sporting jeans and a t-shirt is commonly seen amongst men. For work slacks and a button shirt is the mostly used as well, or a full on suit.

Just like most other things related to men’s health, fashion and grooming helps with confidence levels, and nobody really needs a reason to look good. It attracts the opposite sex, and that is good enough reason as it is.
Most men are pretty straightforward. Besides the unusual few you encounter from time to time. Men’s health can be associated to their mental health. This happens because most you physical body normally portrays how your mind works.
For a man to be a 100% he has to be full functional both physically and mentally. Most men are known not to handle stress in the best of ways, and this normally deteriorates their overall health.
