New York, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2015
Just like a car, your body is a well-oiled machine that needs its check-ups, tune-ups and daily maintenance. Dr. Steven A. Kaplan, director of the Iris Cantor Men?s Health Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, addresses common men?s health myths to get you back in gear towards living a better lifestyle for yourself, your family and your loved ones.
YOU can have control over your libido.
Libido is multidimensional and is affected by many things besides age. This includes frame of mind, obesity and other conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
Protect your skin.
Given that men spend a lot of time in the sun, especially “weekend warriors,” they are susceptible to skin cancers such as melanoma or basal cell cancer. If you see spots starting to appear on your skin, even subtle ones, see your doctor and determine if a biopsy is necessary.
Lifestyle can keep chronic illnesses in check.
Dr. Kaplan says that many chronic illnesses are preventable by lifestyle modification. ?Changing men?s attitudes to health and adaptation of well-being can significantly impact their health and long-term quality of life.?
No matter what your age ? combat cancer with early detection.
Prostate cancer occurs in men under 50 as well. However, the cancer can be cured if it is detected early.
Watch your waist size!
Men deny their increasing girth, waist size and obesity. Bad diet, poor exercise and lack of awareness have contributed to the epidemic of obesity in men. Engage in more fun physical activity outdoors, in the gym or with your family.
Everyone has a heart.
Heart disease and heart attacks don?t just happen to your dad or grandfather. Younger men, including well-known athletes, can get significant heart disease and die from it. If you are experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath or have a family history of cardiac disease, see a doctor immediately.
Take action to manage your aches and pains.
Stop blaming age for your general lack of well-being. Today, you have access to better understanding of diet, exercise regimens and disease screening that can make you healthier, more engaged and happier as you age!

Tea, especially green tea, is often said to be good for your health. Tea contains substances linked to a lower risk for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. But keep tea’s healthy boost in perspective, says the September 2014 Harvard Men’s Health Watch.
“Tea consumption, especially green tea, may not be the magic bullet, but it can be incorporated in an overall healthy diet with whole grains, fish, fruits and vegetables, and less red and processed meat,” says Qi Sun, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.
The main health-promoting substances in tea are polyphenols, in particular catechins and epicatechins. Lab and animal studies say these molecules have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Harvard-led studies of large groups of people over time have found that tea or coffee drinkers are at lower risk for diabetes and possibly cardiovascular disease. Coffee also contains polyphenols.
Now here’s the key caveat: It remains unclear whether the tea itself is the cause of these benefits and, if so, how it works its magic. The studies attempt to rule out the possibility that tea drinkers simply live healthier lifestyles, but it’s difficult to be sure. That said, tea itself appears to have no harmful effects except for a case of the jitters if you drink too much caffeinated brew. It fits in perfectly well with a heart-healthy lifestyle.
One important warning: A cup of tea contains only a couple calories. Processed, sugar-sweetened tea beverages are loaded with extra calories. “If there are any health benefits to green tea consumption, it’s probably completely offset by adding sugar,” Sun says.

Doylestown Hospital recently conducted an interview with Dr. Brad Paddock covering a variety of men?s health questions. Paddock tackles topics including main men’s health concerns, health issues specific to men, why women live longer than men, and testosterone replacement therapy, among others. In the article, Men’s Health Made Simple featured on Doylestown Hospital?s website, Dr. Brad Paddock says, ?A man can get a hernia at any age. If you notice pain, bulging, or asymmetry in your lower abdomen, groin, or scrotum, see your doctor to be checked for a hernia. Men get coronary artery disease about 10 years younger than women. That risk can be reduced by exercising, avoiding tobacco, and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol. Tell your doctor if you have chest pain.?
