5 Plays for Men to Stay at the Top of Their Game


On average, men in the United States die five years earlier than women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Not only that, but they also die at higher rates from nine of the top 10 leading causes of death. The CDC also reports that 1 in 13 adult men live with heart disease — their No. 1 killer — and 1 in 10 say they experience some form of depression or anxiety every day. While men are at an increased risk for many health conditions, they are less likely than women to visit a doctor or receive an annual checkup.
