Movember

So why are men across the globe sprouting shadows above their lip?

It's Movember. Men's health awareness month. Men Grow a mustache to raise awareness, woman consider being a mo sister, all please donate to Movember
http://us.movember.com/mens-health



MEN'S HEALTH

On average, men die at a significantly younger age than women. The average life expectancy for American men is almost five years less than women (presently 76 compared to 81), however there is no biological reason for this. The reasons for the poor state of men’s health in America and around the world are numerous and complex.

From Movember’s perspective the reasons for the poor state of men’s health include:
Lack of awareness and understanding about the health issues men face
Men not openly discussing their health and how they’re feeling
Reluctance to take action when men don’t feel physically or mentally well
Men engaging in risky activities that threaten their health
Stigmas surrounding both physical and mental health

Movember aims to change the face of men’s health and reverse this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue. Using the moustache as a catalyst, we want to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health more openly and take action.

Using scary stats to motivate people is not how we roll at Movember, but the facts below are too startling to ignore. In the US:
1 in 2 men, and 1 in 3 women, will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime.
Over 238,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed and almost 30,000 men will die of prostate cancer in 2013.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in males between the ages of 15 and 35.
7,920 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer and 370 will die in 2013.
6 million people die every year from tobacco use and exposure to tobacco smoke. One person dies every six seconds.
1 in every 13 men will be diagnosed with lung cancer in his lifetime.
While not as common, men can get breast cancer. About 2,240 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed among men and about 410 men will die from the disease in 2013.
More than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year.
An estimated 13 million men, or 11.8% of all men over the age of 20, have diabetes.
Approximately 76.4 million men and women have high blood pressure.
Men who sit more than six hours a day have an 18 percent increased risk of dying from heart disease and a 7.8 percent increased chance of dying from diabetes compared with someone who sits for three hours or less a day.
Globally, 5.3 million deaths will be attributed to physical inactivity.
Over 6 million men are diagnosed with depression each year.
Almost four times as many males as females die by suicide.
24% of men are less likely to go to the doctor compared to women.

Our vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health by supporting prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. We focus our efforts on:
Awareness and education
Staying mentally healthy
Living with and beyond cancer
Living with and beyond mental illness
Research

My last pitch..promise.

ABOUT MOVEMBER
As an official global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches on men's faces around the world. Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.

HOW IT WORKS
Movember encourages men to join the movement by growing a moustache for the 30-days of November. After REGISTERING on Movember.com, these generous Mo Bros start the month clean-shaven, then grow and groom their Mo (slang for moustache), asking friends and family to donate to their efforts. With their new moustaches, these Mo Bros bring much needed awareness to men’s health issues by prompting conversations wherever they go.

Movember’s not just for men. Mo Sistas are an important part of Movember’s success. Once REGISTERED, Mo Sistas raise funds and encourage the men in their lives to get involved. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo. Learn more about Mo Sistas HERE.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey by throwing their own Movember EVENTS or attending one of the official GALA PARTÉS held around the world.

The Movember Effect
Globally, the funds raised by our Mo Bros and Mo Sistas support world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. These programs, directed by the Movember Foundation, are focused on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness and research to achieve our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.

Movember - a global movement
Since its humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 3 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate across 21 countries worldwide. Movember is also aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health causes in other parts of the world, from Moscow to Rio de Janeiro, and everywhere in between.

In 2012, over 1.1 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world joined the movement, raising USD $147.0 million. In the US, over 209,000 Mo’s raised $21.0 million.

So we could do this with a Lit playground flair ?

Can you all post mustache pics? Woman wearing a mustache (aka Victor Victoria) or woman can post their favorite men with upper growth.
(I would start but can't figure out how to post with an iPad)

Decent post pity that men are reluctant to go to a doctor. Stubbornness can be a good trait but not always.

My kids do no-shave November...they suggested I do it, too, but I think that would probably lead to no-D December....sooooo, no.

I agree with your posting, Sensualdreamer : But to be stubborn with his health, a man faces serious risks. I now have 2 good friends with prostate cancer, why? just because they did not want to get the special test done, now it is so sad.

Yeah, but guys are a little weird about having other guys touch them there... even if the other guy is a doctor... (just speaking from a man's perspective...)

They have a new test done by blood testing, not more "Finger up the butt" issues, but it's only to check for cancer, not swelling.

Men need to get over that homophobic attitude and accept it's all part of being healthy. A discreet finger is a lot easier to deal with, than having one's ass opened for surgery and ruined for anymore fun.

Come on Guys, bend over and smile, it's just another handshake to learn, lol
30 seconds to do and no one has to know you're healthy. Trust me, your manhood is still intact and you'll rest easier knowing the package will still be working for years to come, or is hat cum?

I'm now on day 5 of growing my 'stache. So far have avoided the itches that normally come with growing facial hair

We could encourage men to post their "mo" growth here throughout the month
Maybe a contest?
