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.
- ?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?.
- ?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.

- 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?
- ?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.
