If you are a married woman, U.S. government statistics predict you will spend the last seven years of your life as a widow. While a woman might take an active role in her own health and well-being, most men are too busy or too distracted to regularly go to the doctor and keep tabs on their health. Too many women have sat by helpless, not knowing what to do when it becomes clear that their loved one isn't taking proper care of himself.Dr. Kra, a leading professor at the Yale School of Medicine, addresses how a woman can affect her husband's health in How to Keep Your Husband Alive, an incredibly helpful, informative guide to telltale signs of illness. With Kra's help, women can at least try to help their stubborn husbands take better care of themselves and see a doctor. Kra discusses early signs of illness including: face color, hair loss, frequency of urination, weight gain/loss, breathing patterns, alcohol use, and others.
