Men’s Health Week 2017

From 12-18 June, Spectrum marked Men’s Health Week – a week to focus on health issues which more commonly affect men, and what we can do to reduce risk.

This year’s campaign, led by the Men’s Health Forum, focused on abdominal obesity (belly fat) – this is the most dangerous type of fat, and most often affects men. If you’re male, having a waist size of 37 inches or more could be putting you at greater risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. This is true even if your overall weight is normal; it’s the abdominal fat which is most harmful.

To support the campaign, Men’s Health forum designed a range of free posters and advice which is available on their website.
