Dad takes care of the family, now we can remind dad to take care of himself. Men’s Health Week is celebrated each year during the week leading up to and including Father’s Day, from June 15th to the 21st, to bring attention to the importance of men’s health and wellness.
In 1994 Senator Bob Dole and former Congressman Bill Richardson sponsored a bill to create Men’s Health Week with the purpose to heighten awareness of preventable health problems among men and boys and to encourage them to seek regular medical advice for early treatment of disease.

Observers of this special week often wear a blue ribbon as a symbol of their support for the fight against prostrate cancer, but this week highlights additional health concerns men deal with.

Men have a higher death rate than women for the top 10 leading causes of death in the US, according to Men’s Health Network. American men die 5.7 years earlier than women but visit doctors 30 percent less. In the last 20 years, there has been a 48 percent increase of melanoma skin cancer in men.
Men are often big meat eaters, but high fat animal proteins are often implicated in cancer, diabetes and heart disease. To keep fat and cholesterol down, proteins like beans and legumes, fish and poultry are better choices.
Men and boys are sometimes big veggies haters, but eating a variety of vegetables and fruits helps protect against cancers by increasing levels of beta carotene, lutein and vitamin C in the blood.
The high fiber content in fruit and vegetables helps prevent cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and digestive problems. Fiber also helps men control their weight by filling them up and not out. Aim for about 35 grams of fiber for 2500 calories.
If you are planning a barbecue for dad on Father’s Day, Vegetarian Fry Chic or Portabella Mushroom Burgers adds great taste and nutrition to the cookout while keeping it healthy for Dad.
