June is Men’s Health Month and once again men are being faced with some dire health circumstances and according to many health research agencies, our situations are getting better. Average life expectancy in the United States dropped by a full year—from 78.8 to 77.8 years—in the first six months of 2020, according to provisional data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and the life expectancy gap between the sexes widened. Women now outlive men by an average of 5.4 years versus the 5.1-year average in 2019, the NCHS reported and it’s even lower if you are an African-American or Hispanic male. Today take a moment to consider what you can do to take control of the longevity of your life and be sure to sign up for our podcast and blog at tbgmen.com.
