The Primary Cause of Death in Men & What To Do About It

The primary cause of death in men, worldwide to a very large extent is preventable. That primary cause is cardiovascular disease. In other words diseases of the heart and the blood vessels. This includes heart attack, stroke, and high blood pressure, with high blood pressure so commonly being the first. Obviously this is not my most popular post but the reality is the causes of cardiovascular disease are well known and include primarily smoking (anything, like it or not), physical inactivity, poor diet, and alcohol. Add a poor family history and genetics to this it's a recipe for disaster.

Sadly, and for many men of all different ages around the world this is a part of their lives. Worldwide, the higher the income the more prevalent heart disease becomes. So as we talk about frequently, it's lifestyle.

So let's say, you're trying to make a change for yourself or someone your love. Where do you start?

The primary thing is accept accepting responsibility for things you can change, and make a list of all of these. Next, decide if you actually want to then how you propose to make the most meaningful changes.

It doesn't have to be complicated. The Internet right now is full of "health coaches", books, videos, crazy expensive programs for life change that too often are never followed through. Don't forget the magic supplements too. So often, people are spending far more on this these rather than practical advice guided by a licensed physician.

Whatever path you take for yourself and your family, just be sure to stay on track.


For all our male readers, In my opinion and experience, having a physician trained in lifestyle medicine at your side is the smartest thing you can do.

Membership in our Direct Primary Care Practice allows you to achieve all of these things, and so much more. Sadly, far more women than men take this approach.

Starting with a diagnostic baseline, then carefully outlining what could be impacting you the most, together we can help you formulate an actual plan, and help keep you accountable to yourself and your family. Unlike traditional healthcare, in our practice you can be seen monthly or more frequently if necessary. In fact, our healthiest patients are doing just this.
