Heart disease and cancer are among the leading causes of death for Latino men. Each year over 40% of men in the U.S., are lost to such chronic diseases, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Why do men face higher health risks?
Compared to women, men are often less likely to get preventative screenings or checkups. Additionally, certain health behaviors related to diet, physical inactivity, and smoking may lead to increased risks of disease.
Certain occupations and exposures may also put men at risk for certain cancers and poor health.
