I'm all for equality, but dieting provides an exception.

There are some facts that can't be argued with. On average, men tend to be taller and more muscular than women. The larger and more muscular one is, the more calories one needs to consume to maintain that size, therefore, men typically need more calories than women. The 2,000-calorie diet, which the nutritional panel on most products is based on, can cause some misleading results; it implies to average person (AKA someone not interested in pulling out a calculator to do the math) that eating a serving of that product will

Easy Tips = Big Benefits

by Lori Sciame June 21st, 2019 | Men's Health
Thinking about improving one's overall health can be overwhelming. Today's overabundance of information, coming in from all directions, from TV to the Internet, can cause one's head to spin. Many men ask, "how can I sift through all the do's and don'ts to find out the best health information for me?"

HIV Info for Men

by Lori Sciame December 7th, 2018 | Health Observance, Men's Health
While being diagnosed with HIV may not be the death sentence it once was, the disease still causes serious health concerns. Because of this, men should continue to take precautions to avoid contracting the HIV virus.

HIV can only be contracted by sharing certain bodily fluids: blood, semen, and vaginal secretions.  This means that a man will not catch HIV after drinking from a glass used by an infected person.  Also, closed mouth kissing and simple sneezing will not spread the disease.
