Here is the list of five potential ?bullets?, the five most dangerous health threats aimed at the average American man that can disable or kill.

  1. ?Heart Disease is the most deadliest disease for men.? More than 1 in 3 adult men have some?form of heart disease, and almost 400,000 men?? may die in one year alone; and believe it or not, not every victim is overweight or inactive. ?Even if you?re slim, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet, you may not be ?bullet proof?.
  2. ?Cancer. ?We all know that smoking causes lung cancer, but the risk factors for prostate cancer are less well known. Yet, it?s one of the most common?1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. Exercise and a ?Mediterranean diet?, or eating more than 10 grams of garlic or scallions daily have a 50 percent lower risk of prostate cancer.
  3. ?Accidents.? 30,000 preventable accidental deaths occur on America?s highways every year. ?72% of drivers regard themselves as skilled, but generally the worst drivers are the ones least able to recognize the lack of skill in themselves.
  4. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) . ?The chief culprit of COPD?which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema ? is the ?Marlboro Man?. Smoking causes 80 percent of COPD deaths. Smoking is linked to other killers on our list? heart disease (#1) and cancer (#2).? So why are people still smoking?
  5. ?Stroke. Each year, nearly 50,000 American men die of a stroke. And they aren?t all elderly victims either. In fact, 1 in 14 stroke victims are younger than 45. And small, ?silent strokes? often precede large, debilitating strokes.

A professional Specialty Care Services home care nurse /Caregiver can encourage their patients adopt healthier lifestlyles, which can??extend and improve their?lives.
