Most African American Men Don´t See a Doctor

 

A new study conducted by the University of Michigan School of Public Health suggests that most African American men don´t see doctors because it often is "a bad experience".

Most participants of the study reported that they don´t feel doctors give them useful tips and it stresses them to go there.

It is known that black men die about seven years earlier than men of other ethnic groups.

  good for them  
 
I don´t see doctors either, why see a doctor if your not sick?

and there is two ways to look at the average life span, do they die 7 years earlier or do they avoid 7 years in a nursing home?

sorry not quite a comment on the actual story itself, just the term "african american". Maddox does a better job saying it than I prolly could, because he´s funny, and I suck. So, follow the link to be enlightened

  Naw Why Go To A Doctor if You Are Not Sick Now?  
 

Who needs to know if they have treatable hypertension, a high PSA indicating early prostate cancer, polyps that can lead to rectal cancer. Easily treatable little things that can kill you and have killed many.

Who cares about breast cancer unless the tumor has spread.

Wait until you feel sick, man up.

(And die terribly, and unnecessarily) your family can take it.

Women are better than men at seeing the doctor in the picture. Being black has nothing to do with it.
