The Harvard Medical School Guide to Men's Health

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 2002 - Health & Fitness - 485 pages
"While this excellent men's health guide stands on its own, its research is based on the Harvard Men's Health Watch newsletter and shares common goals with the Harvard Family Health Guide. Simon (medicine, Harvard Medical Sch.; Staying Well), the newsletter's founding editor, aims to empower men to improve their health and to motivate them to change lifestyles for the better. Basing his advice on three long-term Harvard studies that have tracked more than 96,000 men for many years, Simon reviews programs of diet, exercise, supplements, stress control, and medical care, and addresses frequently asked questions (e.g., should I take a daily aspirin?, is wine really good for me?, and should I have a PSA blood test?). Much like a very caring family doctor, Simon presents both sides of issues and lets the reader know what the evidence recommends as best practice." - product description.
