Men’s Health Week 2018

June 12, 2018

Men’s Health Week 2018 will run from 12-18 June.

This year we’ll be focusing on belly fat. Why? Because it’s the type of fat that’s bad for your health and men are more likely to have it.

It’s a problem because belly fat lurks not just beneath the surface but also gets down deep and surrounds your vital organs. Regardless of your overall weight, a large amount of belly fat increases your risk of:

Cardiovascular disease

Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes

Colorectal cancer

Sleep apnea

Premature death from any cause

High blood pressure

So, men need to get those tape measures out.

Men’s Health Week will be a fat lot of good without your participation. So what should we do for June 2018? We’re looking for some belly good suggestions.
