The number one killer of men is heart attacks. Heart attacks claim nearly four hundred thousand men every year. One in three adult men has some type of heart disease. Heart attacks do not have a particular age in which they claim lives. If you think you are having a heart attack, do not delay getting to the emergency room because no two heart attacks have the same symptoms. Yes, there are general symptoms but each heart attack has their own unique symptoms. Before you head to the emergency room remember to take an aspirin.
Here are some other killers of men.
- The number five killer is a stroke, of which each year nearly fifty thousand men die. Again, strokes can happen to any age. One in four stroke victims are younger than forty five years of age. Many men have small silent strokes they are not even aware of.
- The number four killer of men is COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). This includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Eighty percent of the deaths from this disease are caused by smoking.
- The number three killer of men is accidents. This killer claims eighty thousand men each year. These accidents range from sports injuries to falls to power tool accidents to fires. Accidents on the road claim more than thirty thousand men each year.
- The number two killer of men is cancer, which claimed more than three hundred thousand men in 2010. The top cancer killer was lung cancer. It accounted for twenty nine percent of the deaths. Eleven percent of cancer deaths were linked to prostrate cancer and nine percent were linked to rectum/colon cancer.
