Publisher's Synopsis

'The ultimate guide on how to stay healthy as a man, both physically and mentally'

Being a man is bad for your health. Not only do men have a greater chance of getting almost every illness but they die sooner too: one in five men die before the age of 65. So why do so many men still accept poor health as a consequence of 'just getting older'?

In MAN ALIVE, Dr Jeff Foster, men's health specialist and private GP, examines the most commonly misunderstood aspects of men's health, such as testosterone deficiency and 'male menopause', heart disease, diabetes and mental health. He also looks at conditions related to male anatomy and physiology, including erectile dysfunction and prostate disease, with advice on what symptoms and signs to look for, how to self-examine, and when to consider seeing a doctor. Dr Foster covers problems to do with lifestyle too, including obesity, poor sleep, bad nutrition, and lack of exercise, and he examines the evidence for specific health claims - busting plenty of myths along the way.

'An immensely useful and practical guide, answering the questions that every man has about their day-to-day health'

'Many men avoid going to the doctor as they fear their concerns are either embarrassing or they will not be taken seriously. This book will empower men with the right information to change this'
