June marks the annual observance of MEN’S HEALTH MONTH. National attention is placed on raising awareness and motivating men and their families to start following healthier practices; including exercise and eating healthy foods. On average, American men live 5 years less than women. They also are more likely to suffer from these three leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, or accidents. And that it’s not just an individual problem. This year during Men’s Health Month (June 18th – July 18th), one imperative goal would be for parents to teach children healthy habits starting from a very early age so they develop lifelong skills and know-how when it comes to making their own decisions concerning health matters.
