    Happy Movember Friends!

    Movember is the month where moustaches take shape on  men around the world. By way of their fabulous “mos,” men raise vital funds and increase awareness about some of the most pressing health concerns affecting them — prostate and testicular cancer; mental health; and physical inactivity among them.

    While education and fundraising are essential, we also need to encourage and support the boys and men in our lives in living healthy lifestyles with a view to preventing disease. Making some or all of these choices can help:

    1. HAVE AN ANNUAL PHYSICAL: Annual check-ups, preventative screening tests, and immunizations are among the most important things you can do to stay healthy.
    2. DON’T SMOKE! If you smoke, stop. Smoking is responsible for about 90% of lung cancer death in men.
    3. BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE: Adults need at least 150 minutes of heart-pumping activity every week. Strength training is important too.
    4. EAT A HEALTHY DIET: Fill up on fruits, veggies and whole grains; include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts; and eat foods low in saturated fats, trans-fats, cholesterol, sodium and added sugars.
    5. MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT: Balance calories consumed with those expended through activity.
    6. MANAGE STRESS: Stress is a factor in the onset and deterioration of health.
    7. DRINK ALCOHOL IN MODERATION: Drink alcohol in moderation and limit your consumption to no more than two drinks a day.
    8. KNOW YOUR FAMILY’S HEALTH HISTORY: While we can’t change our genes or family history of disease, we can often mitigate our risk for certain conditions and diseases through a healthy lifestyle. Be sure to have this conversation with your physician.
