  • 2 men in 5 die before age 75.
  • A waist over 37 inches puts you at increased risk of many serious health conditions.
  • You can have a NHS health check from age 40.
  • Women live longer than men.
  • Just over three-quarters of suicides (76%) are male.
  • Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 49.
  • Men between the ages of 18 and 44 are less likely to go see a doctor than women.
  • Relationship breakdown and financial worries are more likely for men to lead to suicide.
  • Men are nearly three times more likely than women to become alcohol dependent.
  • Men are more likely to use (and die from) illegal drugs.
  • Men are less likely to access psychological therapies than women.
