Men more likely to die of cancer …

Men have got hang-ups about following through on symptoms and going to the doctors’ meaning they are now 70% more likely to die of cancer than women.  And because they aren’t as informed about health as women (men’s reading material does not routinely include health information in the way women’s magazines do) they are 60% more likely to get cancer in the first place.  Their lack of knowledge mean they are widening this gender gap with their lifestyle choices – great photo on the left isn’t!  Apart from being life-threatening it’s also grosslly unattractive. How come their wives let them get away with figures like this?  See the full report on the BBC website.
