Do the men in your life avoid going to the doctor? Is it hard for them to even talk about getting a checkup?
If so, you have lots of company. A survey by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that men are half as apt to see a doctor as are women over a two-year period.
However, men in the United States also die almost five years earlier than women, and they’re more likely to smoke, drink and engage in risky behavior.
Why won’t men see a doctor, even when they’re suffering?
