Some recent research out of the US has demonstrated that men are much less likely to have visited the Doctor in the previous 12 months and that when they do they are a lot more likely to end up in hospital with preventable diseases and illnesses. What this means is that many men are ignoring the opportunity to practice preventative health. We rarely miss a car service or oil change. That would be plain dumb because the car might just not go or at worse fail catastrophically. Get the picture guys?
There is a great free medical site from the Agency for Health care research and Quality for reminding the father in the family – or any male – to undergo a health screen. It is www.dadtothedoc.org I have tried it and recommend it to all. Of course if you want to know what everyone in the family should be doing in this year of there life for health screening simply subscribe to edoc.net
