Movember - A Reminder For Every Man To Look After His Health

Published: 01 November 2019

The month of November and the Movember campaign is an excellent opportunity for all men to focus on taking care of their health. 

 

Movember: the month for men’s health.

Movember is the month dedicated to men’s health, when men everywhere start to grow moustaches, beards and hair, to spread awareness of men’s health.

The “Grow a mo” Movember campaign is a great reminder, to take care of your health.

1 in 8 people in the UK are diagnosed every year with prostate cancer, and testicular cancer affects younger men. Check-ups are fundamental for early diagnosis.

In the UK, men are 3 times more likely to die from suicide than women, and they often struggle to speak up.

67% of men are overweight or obese compared to 62% of women. Men are also less likely to eat the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

The month of November with the Movember campaign is an opportunity for you as a man to take action for your health.

Early action is critical.
