Getting men to pay attention to their own health isn't easy. When given the chance to read Maxim
or schedule a prostate gland
exam with the doc (yup, it's the one with the finger up the butt), I think we all know which is more appealing to the dudes. A few different organizations are wisely using things that men love -- drinking beer and growing mustaches, namely -- to get them thinking about screening this very important male gland. Pints for Prostates
uses the glory of hops to get men to think about getting screened. Some recent studies that swigging beer is actually good for your prostate
will prolly help their cause as well! Movember Australia
also focuses on prostate health, and raises awareness by getting the gents to grow a moustache in November (Australia's men's health month, American prostate health month is in September). So even though it's months away, our prostate stopped shaving and donned a nice 'stache in honor of this awesome organization.
