There was a time, not so long ago, when men left the responsibility for their health in the hands of another. Their traditional stay-at-home wives were the sentries of their well-being, preparing healthful home-cooked meals, urging them to take their vitamins and get more sleep.
In today’s world of two-career families and fast-paced lifestyles, that scenario just doesn’t work anymore. A 2001 study by University of Chicago sociologist Ross Stolzenberg, Ph.D., showed that a husband’s odds for good health drop 25 percent if his wife works full-time. It’s clear that men need to become an equal partner in their health and well-being.
