Pharmacy Outlet Commemorates Men’s Health Week 2017


The International Men’s Health Week 2017 is celebrated from June 12 to 18.

Celebrated globally during the week ending on Father’s Day (June 18), Men’s Health Week honours the importance of the health and wellbeing of boys and men.

Men’s Health Week provides an excellent opportunity to educate people about the things to be done to improve the physical and psychological state of men’s health. It is celebrated by providing free health services to men who would not otherwise receive healthcare.

The response has been great, generating numerous awareness activities in the UK and around the world.

Men’s Health Week is commemorated to heighten the awareness of preventable health issues and encourage early detection and treatment of conditions among men. The experts also noted that prevention requires proper awareness and dedicating a week would spread more information on preventing health problems affecting men. The awareness includes medical events and screenings in the UK and abroad.

Men’s Health Week events are conducted so that men with hectic schedule can easily attend them.

This Men’s Health Week (June 12-18) is all about “belly fat”. That’s because belly fat is bad for your health and men are more vulnerable to it.

Belly fat is a global issue because it lies not just under the skin but also lurks deep inside the vital organs of the body. A large amount of belly fat can increase the risk of life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, colorectal cancer, high blood pressure, sleep apnoea and even premature death.

Hence, men need to take that measuring tape out and check their waist. If you have a waist circumference above 37 inches, you are at the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke and erectile dysfunction. If it is above 40 inches, you are potentially at the risk of all these medical conditions.

Men can get rid of belly fat simply by eating right and working out. The complications of belly fat are preventable, so make sure you choose a healthy lifestyle.

Pharmacy Outlet advises people to choose healthy lifestyle by eating well, exercising, limiting alcohol, quitting smoking and managing stress effectively.
