Healthy Dads: 5 Reasons Why a Health Checkup Is the Best Father’s Day Gift

A staggering 60 percent of men don’t get regular health checkups and, on average, die five years earlier than their spouses. Here are five reasons why a checkup is the best Father’s Day gift of all: 

  1. You can’t check blood pressure with a coffee mug. One in three people have high blood pressure, and half have no idea.
  2. Lawnmowers cut grass, not cholesterol. High cholesterol has no symptoms, and less than one-third of people with high cholesterol have it under control.
  3. Golf clubs can’t detect cancer.cancer screening is essential to early detection – and is the key to beating cancer.
  4. A six-pack won’t give him a six-packWeightexercisediet and sleep matter. Providers have helpful tips for healthy living.
  5. A great checkup beats a new tie. Dad may not have any health issues, but he won’t know unless he goes.

Happy (Healthy) Father's Day!
