Movember

I know it's the 14th of Movember... I did mean to do this post earlier, but I just couldn't find the time for it! I want to raise awareness and what better way than to dig through 'the crate' to find sheet music with some great vintage examples of Mos on the cover. You'll find these pictures further down this post.

Daniel Craig - a natural!

Let's remind ourselves about why Movember is important. Here are the facts...
  • The average life expectancy for men in the UK is four years less than women 
  • More than 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime 
  • Prostate, colon, lung and breast cancers account for over half of the cancer diagnosis in the UK 
  • Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the UK. Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer ever year and there are 250,000 men currently living with the disease 
  • 1 in 9 men in the UK are likely to face prostate cancer in their lifetime. This is comparable to the 1 in 9 women that are estimated to get breast cancer 
  • 2,209 men in the UK were diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2009 
  • 47% of testicular cancer cases occur in men under 35 years and over 90% occur in men under 55 years 
  • 1 in 4 British adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any one year 
  • Since 1996, the number of people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK has increased from 1.4 million to 2.9 million 
  • 42% of men were classified as overweight in 2010 (in England) compared to 32% women 
  • Obese men are 5 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes and 3 times more likely to develop cancer of the colon 
  • In Great Britain, 31% drink more alcohol than the advised weekly limit of 21 units
I'm taking part by growing a "Motorhead", and whilst I hope this does some good by helping to fund research into diseases like prostate cancer, I also hope that it helps to remind bros everywhere to do the right thing and look after yourselves!

  1. I think it would be good to end Mowvember by having all the guys taking part in the months activities officially ending Mowvember by having to mow their lawns as well.-)

  2. I'm going to take a leap and assume "mow their laws" is a euphemism. Ha ha! I'm up for it! In fact I might not even wait for the end of Mowvember!
