Men’s health is put under the spotlight in the latest Police Mutual factsheet.

The factsheet, which has been launched to coincide with Men’s Health Week (10 to 16 June), encourages men to consider their general wellbeing.

According to the UK Government website, one in 10 men aged 50 have a heart age 10 years older than they are. Cardiovascular disease (CVD), with stroke and heart attack being the most common examples, is the leading cause of death for men and the second leading cause of death for women.

A quarter of CVD deaths are in people under the age of 75, with 80 per cent of these preventable if lifestyle and behavioural changes were made to improve their heart health.

The factsheet puts a focus on testicular and prostate cancer and diabetes as well as offering tips for staying healthy.

It also covers mental and financial wellbeing, suggesting where to get support if necessary.
