It’s not a secret that men face more daunting health odds than women after a certain age. Some of this could be due to biology, the type of work they do, or the fact many men do not address possible health issues at all. Men visit their general practitioner around four times a year compared to six times for women. Even so the life expectancy for a man has increased dramatically in the past 50 years. How long we live is important; but our quality of life is just as important. The ability to enjoy life to its fullest requires investing time and effort into health maintenance and disease prevention.
