The reluctance of men to adopt a healthy lifestyle appears to be fuelling a gender gap in cancer cases and deaths. Among cancers which affect both genders, men are 60% more likely to develop the disease and 70% more likely to die from it, Cancer Research UK said.  There is no known biological reason for this but it may be because women take better care of themselves.

It’s a bit like asking for directions, isn’t it?  Men will drive around lost, refusing to ask for directions, but women will sensibly ask a passer by the way.  Men need to set a better example for their peers and children.  Less beer and chips, more exercise.
