Public Health England: Middle-aged men rate their health

Post by Waterbaby »


From: Public Health England
First published: 9 February 2016

"Middle-aged men rate their health as more important than their money or career."

"There may be a discrepancy between how much men value their health and what they do to look after it, according to new research from Public Health England:
three quarters (74%) of men in England aged 40 to 60 place their health in the top three most important things in their life
only a third (35%) feel confident that they know all the risk factors for heart disease
six out of ten (58%) men believe their health will get progressively worse, regardless of whether they live a healthy lifestyle"

For National Heart Month 2016, Public Health England is encouraging men aged 40 to 74 to take up their invitation for a free NHS Health Check appointment. The Check is an opportunity to assess their cardiovascular health and lower their risk of developing preventable conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain types of cancer and dementia."
