It’s MOVEMBER!

We are nearly half way through Movember – how’s the tashe growing going guys (and those few ladies)?

All hail Movember, the month of the moustache, when men grow their finest handlebar to raise awareness of prostate cancer. And it’s good news for those charitable hairies, because the latest survey has revealed that a Movember moustache could make you more attractive to the opposite sex.

According to the study, over a fifth of women said they’d be more likely to date a guy growing a ‘tache this month, with 55 per cent saying raising money for charity makes a potential date more attractive. And 80 per cent of women also said a moustache can make a guy look ‘fun’, ‘generous’, ‘rugged’ and ‘outdoorsy’.

But who exactly should the ‘tache growing’ man channel?

Last year Movember raised £92million with 1.1million Mo Bros taking part from around the world.

The state of men’s health is in a crisis. Simply put, men are dying too young.

Gender is one of the strongest and most consistent predictors of health and life expectancy. For men, this is not good news. On average, across the world, men die 6 years earlier than women.

Moreover, poor mental health affects men more than women: three quarters of suicides are by men. The World Health Organisation estimates that 510,000 men die from suicide globally each year. That’s one every minute.

The impact of prostate and testicular cancer on lives is substantial, with prostate cancer being the second most common cancer in men worldwide and the number of cases expected to almost double to 1.7 million cases by 2030.
