Men’s Health Week – June 15-21, 2009

Men’s Health Week starts today and runs through June 21, 2009. We will be doing a series of blog posts this week dedicated to men’s health.

To mark Men’s Health Week, a report was published today showing men are almost 40 percent more likely than women to die from cancer, and they are 16 percent more likely to develop the disease in the first place. The study was done by the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) and Cancer Research UK together with the Men’s Health Forum.

The purpose of Men’s Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This week gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.
