Weighty issue for men

Men are underestimating the extent of their excess weight according to a new study, which implies that the obesity issue for the male sex is not being heeded. Most men do not realize the high association of obesity or sedentary lifestyles with cancer, particularly bowel, stomach, kidney, prostate, bladder and esophageal cancers. The best method of avoiding being overweight is to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle with plenty of fresh produce, smoking cessation, and regular visits to the doctor. Becoming more aware of the adverse health effects that obesity causes, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, cancer, etc, is also essential.
