According to their theories, biologists say that the normal lifespan of human beings are 120 years old. But the true is in the U.S. and other developed countries, average life expectancy at birth is about 80.7 years for women and about 75.4 years for men (2006 data). The disparity between the sexes - 5.3 years - has been declining since it peaked at about eight years in 1979.

obesity prostate cancer questions In 2008 the EU life expectancy at birth was 82.4 years in women and 76.4 years in men, a gap of 6 years! There were marked differences among countries, with a life expectancy at birth ranging in women from 77.0 years in Bulgaria to 84.8 in France, and in men from 66.3 years in Lithuania to 80.0 in Iceland. A gender gap in life expectancy was present in each of the 27 countries, always favouring women, with a minimum of 3.3 years in Iceland and a maximum of 11.3 years in Lithuania.

Why men die earlier than 120?

The answer is cristal clear: 99.9% die of sickness. This is a significant condition why men's health should be a very important thing for male population and a big concern for whole society.

The truth is astonishing. Men are 39% more likely to die of diabetes than the women, 55% of cancer, 64% of pneumonia or influenza, 78% of cardiovascular disease, four times more likely to commit suicide, twice more likely to die of an accident, and so on.

On the other hand, it is often said that main part of men do not like to admit, even to themselves, that they can have health problems because they feel that it is a sign of weakness.

It is real men generally die younger than women and have higher death rates for heart disease, prostate cancer, stroke and AIDS. But a U.S. survey found that women are three times more likely than men to see a doctor on a regular basis.

Men may be far less likely than women to see a doctor. They're not willing to make a lifestyle change so they think it's a waste of time listening to a doctor tell them to change the way they eat, to start exercising and stop smoking if they're not going to do it anyway

But the longer a man delays seeing a doctor and asking questions, the more likely he'll end up having to see one on a regular basis A man may feel selfish or weak going to the doctor or caring for his health, but it makes a positive impact on the whole family.

According to Government statistics:
  • men make 150 million fewer visits in a year to their doctors than do women.
  • male patients are more likely to wait until a problem that could have been easily treated or prevented is severe or life-threatening.
Of course, men should be responsible for their own health problems. But the society must be responsible too. If it is good enough for women to get government assisted education programmes, government assisted research, and government assisted health care for breast cancer, then it should also be good enough for male population to get the same for prostate cancer and other specific condition and disease.

It is a fact that men are far less likely than women to talk about their health, but is also true that when it comes to sensitive issues like bladder control or urinary incontinence, the bathroom door is firmly closed on the discussion.

Men deserve the same concerns and attention as female population has. The same care and encouragement to get regular exams, the same coverage in health care plans and the same efforts to find better treatment. And, very important, they need the women support just because children need both parents.

There are a lot of questions regarding this subject. Very important is kids look to their parents for questions and examples of how to live. So lead by example. If men live a healthy life, so will and kids.

The Vienna Declaration on the health of men and boys

"A men's health issue is a disease or condition unique to men, more prevalent in men, more serious among men, for which risk factors are different for men or for which different interventions are required for men" (Fletcher 1996)
