Abstract

Recent epidemiological research has indicated that men have increased health risks due to biological and social factors. Research in the area of men's health has been focused on disease events and subsequent disabilities. In future aging societies, more attention should be paid to the importance of men's health because a decreased quality of life and increased social burden are impending unless proper maneuvers are taken to slow the development and progression of morbidity through the use of preventive strategies. The adoption of a healthier lifestyle and the early identification and management of risk factors are very important and can be an initiative for prevention and for slowing the progression of morbidities with related quality of life issues. Males are rather vulnerable in terms of health, and conscious and active efforts are required to promote their health in an aging society. Here, we hope to shed light on the influence of lifestyle modifications and their clinical implications on men's health.
