“As men in general we tend to be less aware of our health and do not pay as much attention as we should…specifically things that we can focus on that are going to have a very positive effect on our health. It’s important to be screened for the things that are risk factors for heart disease: High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, screening for diabetes if you are overweight, and smoking”.
