In June, we celebrate Father’s Day, Men’s Health Month and National Safety Month. These separate observances have a common theme — we can use them as an opportunity to focus on the health of the men in our lives.
Men die from accidents at a rate averaging about 40 percent higher than women. These higher rates begin in infancy. Accidental deaths include car accidents, overdoses, falls, fires, poisonings, drowning and other unintentional causes.
