Men “Bulletproof” Until Mid-40s

A major health concern in this nation is the fact that many men in their 50s and older haven’t seen
a doctor in years.

With the aging of the baby boomers, more than 150,000 men a month are turning 50 from coast to coast.

“Up until around 45, men are basically bulletproof, so there’s little need to see a doctor,” according to Dr. Gordon Ehlers of Denver. “Men also are not conditioned, as women are, to have annual checkups. All of which leads to a large segment of the population who does not know about or use the health-care system.”

That changes after about 45 because of three critical ailments that begin to emerge – joint deterioration, cancer, and heart disease. The last is the number-one killer around the world.
But the biggest health-care problem is that men who have reached this age do not visit doctors

The first critical move for men in this cohort is to begin with an annual general physical exam to screen for general problems, such as stress and anxiety.
