Men's Health Week (12-18 June 2017)

Men's Health Week 2017 will run from 12-18 June.

This year the Men's Health Forum will 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.
