June:
Men's Health Month

Men's Health Month - Group of Men


​ June is National Men’s Health Month! This month is all about encouraging the men in your life (including you, men out there!) to take care of their bodies by eating right, exercising, and working to prevent disease. 

Do you know the greatest threats to men's health? According to the CDC, the top causes of death among adult men in the U.S. are heart disease, cancer, unintentional injuries, chronic lower respiratory disease, and stroke. 

Scientists say there's good news though: making just a few lifestyle changes can significantly lower the risk in men of these common killers. For example:
  • Don't smoke. If you do smoke, you can quit successfully! See these resources to help you become and stay a former smoker.
  • Eat a healthy diet for your heart.  Harvard Health offers practical tips on the heart healthy Mediterranean Diet.
  • Lose weight if your waist is over 40 inches. According to research from the NIH, men with a waist measurement of over 40 inches have a higher risk of heart disease. These tips, specifically for men, can help you lose weight effectively.   
  • Get moving. Exercise can help control weight, lower the risk of heart disease and stroke, and possibly lower the risk of certain types of cancer. The Mayo Clinic offers great resources to get you started safely.
  • Manage stress. If you feel constantly on edge or under pressure, your lifestyle habits may suffer — and so might your immune system. Take steps to reduce stress ​and learn to deal with stress in healthy ways.
