Study Finds Men Think They Are Healthier Than They Actually Are
Nearly half of American men don't get a yearly physical or follow a healthy diet,
Men in the United States apparently believe they’re leading a healthier lifestyle than they actually are. A national poll conducted by the Cleveland Clinic found four out of five guys think the way they’re living is conducive to good health. But in this case, actions speak louder than words. It turns out nearly half of American men don’t get a yearly physical or follow a healthy diet, and about a quarter admit they’re couch potatoes who watch television more than five hours a day. Plus a lot of respondents said they do nothing to address their mental health. Researchers who looked at the survey results say men can be “disillusioned, uninformed and absent” when it comes to how they perceive their overall health.
