I have often entertained the theory that men and women originated from parallel universes. When Mrs Neo shakes me loose of some previously long-held male neurosis, I often observe... "So that's how they do it on your world."
Thus I am not surprised by the results of this study.
Men who live with a woman are 40 per cent more likely to be screened for prostate cancer than men who live alone, even if they have a family history of the disease, according to a new study.And guess what guys... this is no trivial matter...
"In terms of motivating people to get screened, there may be a benefit to targeting wives or significant others as well as men," Ms. Wallner said.
"Men growing up learn to not pay attention to health issues. It's part of traditional masculinity that paying too much attention to health is kind of unmanly. It's not so much that they're looking to rely on women. Men don't go there themselves pro-actively."
Prostate cancer is the No. 1 cancer threat to Canadian men. It will afflict one in seven men in their lifetimes - about 24,700 men this year alone, according to the foundation.*
